This chart displays the Iowa public school Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade (PK12) 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 race/ethnicity categories.
Over the years,School Districts consolidate and dissappear. As this is a "Trends" report, we use the list of Districts from the 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 neccessarily match the "Enrollment" reports because some districts have been reconfiguredd each year.
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. The data reflects the race/ethnicity categories, effective since the 2009-2010 academic year (see below).
