Declining Enrolment: Implications for British Columbia's Public School System.
Schwartz, Arthur M.; McGowan, Patrick
This document analyzes the nature and magnitude of enrollment declines that are projected for British Columbia school districts and discusses the implications of reduced enrollment for policy and practice at both provincial and school district levels. In presenting the implications of enrollment decline, the report deals with enrollment projections and their uses in school system organization, the characteristics of effective school district planning, and the implications of enrollment decline for staffing and financing schools, and for providing and maintaining school facilities. Demographic factors underlying enrollment changes are discussed in the appendix. The report recommends changes in legislation and in provincial education finance. (Author/IRT)
