FAIRFIELD — Enrollment in the Fairfield-Suisun School District is projected to remain relatively stable over the next six years, according to a demographics study that goes before trustees Thursday.
The number of students in the 2019-20 school year would total 21,377 – a 0.75 percent decrease that represents the loss of 161 students, according to SchoolWorks, Inc. of Carmichael.
Projections are based on continued development of 1,222 housing units over the next six years. An increase or decrease in building rates would require modifying the timeline.
The multiple-year enrollment projection provides a good planning tool, Kelly Morgan, assistant superintendent of business services, said in a report to trustees.
A 0.33 percent projected decline resulting in 70 fewer students in the 2014-15 school year is used in budget development and staffing, Morgan wrote.
The district has a capacity of 25,921 students and a current enrollment of 21,538.
Trustees meet at 6 p.m. at the school district central office, 2490 Hilborn Road, Board Room No. 108, Fairfield.
