Algoma District School Board’s opening enrolment numbers for elementary and secondary

Opening enrolment numbers were reviewed at the Algoma District School Board Regular Board meeting held on Tuesday, September 29, 2015.

Elementary
The September 18th, 2015 Junior Kindergarten (JK) to Grade 8 enrolment is currently 6202 students, an increase of 114 students from the projected numbers of 6088 as contained in the April, 2015 Director’s Report. To accommodate the increase in enrolment, Administration has added 7 classes across the Board.
Secondary
The projected enrolment in April 2015 for the Regular Secondary Program was 3155 students. As of September 18th, 2015 there were 3220 students registered. This equates to an increase of 65 students at the secondary level.

The Algoma Education Connection (AEC) includes students enrolled in Urban Aboriginal, Teen Parenting Program, Sault College Connection and Prince Charles Secondary School. AEC currently has a total enrolment of 203 students. These programs are still enrolling students and the numbers may change, due also in part to the Board’s Re-engagement Strategy.
