Opening enrolment numbers were reviewed at the Algoma District School Board Regular Board meeting held on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.
The September 16, 2016 Junior Kindergarten (JK) to Grade 8 enrolment is currently 6141 students, an increase of 113 students from the projected number of 6028 as contained in the April, 2016 Director’s Report. To accommodate the increase in enrolment, Administration has added 5 classes across the Board.
The projected enrolment in April 2016 for the Regular Secondary Program was 3058 students. As of September 19th, 2016 there were 3100 students registered. This equates to an increase of 42 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 225 students. These programs are still enrolling students and the numbers may change, due also in part to the Board’s Re-engagement Strategy.
