Seattle Public Schools Enrollment Planning Research

Enrollment Planning works with internal departments and external offices to provide information, share data, and plan for the changes in Seattle Public Schools enrollment over time (overall district enrollment changes over the last five years are shown in the table below).The partnerships formed outside the district assist with long-range demographic and enrollment forecasts by helping us to identify population changes that are likely to impact the capacity of schools.
