Enrollment and Capacity
Building capacities are calculated as outlined in Policy FB-AP: Facilities Planning. Capacity calculations are informed by each school's population and programs, so they are updated as those variables change.
Ten year enrollment projections are made on an annual basis based on cohort survival method - a common practice that utilizes a historic grade progression ratio.
Projected Capacity Conflicts
When capacity and enrollment projections are analyzed together, we are able to document current conflicts and project where conflicts will occur. This spreadsheet is updated annually; it informs both the LRPAC and the School Board in making capital plans and decisions.
