Enrollment counts are the starting point used in state funding formulas to calculate allocations to schools for basic education and other programs.
The District reports monthly enrollment (FTE) to the School Apportionment & Financial Services (SAFS) section of the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) for the purpose of funding the school district.
The District has a specific day each month, September through August, on which to capture the number of enrolled students at each school. Kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) enrollment count dates are as of the fourth school day of September and the first school day of October through August. These monthly counts are averaged over the course of the school year and used to determine the districts state funding.
