Projected Colorado Public School Enrollments to the Year 2000 [Including] Technical Report.
To project school enrollments and the associated need for teachers and other school personnel in Colorado, a research study utilized historical data from 1960-1978 to serve as the basis for the projections. Population, live birth, and school enrollment data were analyzed, using programs from the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences. The study projects that the population of Colorado can be expected to grow, on the average, between 1.4 percent and about 2.0 percent annually and that total school enrollment will generally increase over the period 1980-2000. The tables show the population, live births, live birth rate, and total school enrollment for the years 1960 through 1978 along with the percentage change in each from the previous year. These same categories are projected through the year 2000 with low and high estimates along with nonteaching certified personnel and classroom teachers needed for the period. Other tables show the grade level enrollment by year and projected grade level enrollment. The accompanying technical report describes the study, lists its limitations, and presents the methodology and the results of the study along with a discussion and a summary. (MLF)
