Enrollment for the Leavenworth public schools is down this year.

Amy Sloan, the school district’s executive director of human resources and support services, reviewed enrollment data Monday during a meeting of the Leavenworth Board of Education.

“Unfortunately, I have to report we are down 66 students,” she said.

Sloan said the enrollment figures come from a student count that took place Sept. 20.

Sloan said the enrollment for the school district tends to fluctuate. She said enrollment was up during the last school year but down the year before.

Enrollment information presented during Monday’s meeting shows a total student headcount this school year of 3,793. This is down from the headcount from the 2018-2019 school year, which was 3,859.

The full-time equivalency enrollment for the district, which is different from the headcount, also is down this year. The total FTE enrollment is 3,686.6. This is down from 3,762 the previous school year.

Sloan noted that enrollment numbers at David Brewer and Earl Lawson elementary schools are up.

David Brewer Elementary has seen an increase of 12 students for a total headcount of 444.

Earl Lawson Elementary has seen an increase of 20 students for a total headcount of 275.
