Overenrolled and Underenrolled
AISD's Elementary Schools
Fri., Feb. 3, 2006
Demographic shifts have left a large percentage of center-city schools underenrolled, while schools on the edge of town overflow with students.
AISD considers a school to be underenrolled when enrollment falls below 70% of its permanent capacity. As of Sept. 23, a dozen schools fit that definition.
Meanwhile, two dozen schools are over capacity; 13 of them are over 120% full.
Most Underenrolled Elementary Schools
Oak Springs: 57%
Sunset Valley: 63%
Most Overenrolled Elementary Schools
Walnut Creek: 135%
Bryker Woods: 132%
* Becker's enrollment has dropped to 41% since September.
