Twenty per cent increase in kindergarten enrolments

  • Oct. 28, 2018 3:40 a.m.

At the end of September, enrolments for schools showed an increase of 30 students from last year, or 1.3 per cent, and 11 students higher than projections.

“We are very pleased that once again parents and students continue to choose Clearview Public Schools, with 30 more students than last year and an 1.3% increase,” said Superintendent Peter Barron. “The enrolments for 2018-19 are very encouraging. While some schools did decrease, in general the enrolments went up for many of our schools, showing the trust parents have for the first-choice education we provide. In particular, we are proud of our early learning program which showed a 20% increase at 34 students. We are looking forward to a great year!”

Many of the increases were from kindergarten enrolments which saw a 20 per cent increase or 34 students. Also, Big Valley School saw an increase of 17 per cent or 14 students and the Hutterite colony schools saw an increase of 7 per cent, or 12 students.

School divisions including the Clearview Public Schools are primarily funded through the enrolment count at the end of September. More students provides increased funding from the Alberta Government, which helps to provide dollars for the teachers, educational assistants and supplies that support the learning successes for our students and in our communities.
