Over the past ten years, Bexley City School District has
increased enrollment by 442 students.
The total enrollment at the end of the 2017-2018 school year was 2,372
students. According to Future Think, a
firm that analyzes data and provides enrollment projections to schools, we are
expected to continue to grow over the next ten years. Why?
The City of Bexley has increased by 565 people or approximately 4% over
a five-year period. That increase brings
an increased number of students to our schools.
In fact, we are projected to grow by another 442 students in the next
9-10 years. This growth is a great
indicator of the attractiveness of our community and our schools. However, it is already beginning to present a
challenge as we seek classroom space for our students and address the
additional costs associated with increased enrollment. Enrollment growth does not just bring a need
for increased staff (teaching, administrative, and custodial), but increased
costs associated with supplies and assessment or testing costs. We continue to watch our enrollment and are
beginning to consider the ways that we can address the challenges and
opportunities that growth presents.
