Capital Plan - Projected Enrollment
I am inviting you to attend a presentation of the West Chester Area School District’s options to meet enrollment growth over the next five to ten years. The presentation will take on the following dates:
Monday, January 29, 6:30 p.m. in the Peirce Middle School auditorium.
Wednesday, January 31, 6:30 p.m. in the Stetson Middle School auditorium.
We have seen more than 2,700 residential units approved in our school district the past 18 months. We need to plan for the growth in the number of students we anticipate will be attending our schools from these residences in the next five years.
Our enrollment for the 2017-18 school year is 11,928 students. We are projecting that to increase to 12,677 by the year 2023-24, with about 500 of those students coming to the elementary schools.
To the left, you will find a presentation presented to our school board Property and Finance Committee on January 16.
