This chart displays the Iowa public school Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade (PK-12) enrollments from the last eleven academic years (starting from the most recent year of the COE report). The data includes the count and percentage of students by both Academic District and Individual Grades.
The data source, for this chart and accompanying table, is the Student Reporting in Iowa (SRI), fall submission. Counts and percentages are based on students enrolled and attending in a district as of October 1st of the reported year.
Over the years, School Districts consolidate and disappear. As this is a "Trends" report, we use the list of Districts from the most recent year of data, for the base line. This is why the state and district student totals typically match between the "Enrollment Trends" report and the "Enrollment" reports for the most recent year. While comparing previous year's "Enrollment Trends" reports may not match the "Enrollment" reports because some districts have been reconfigured each year.
Academic District: the district where the student is enrolled and attending as of October 1st of the reported year
Grade: a level of study that is completed by students in the same year of study at a school; this chart and table includes:
