The 2015-16 school year marks the third straight year elementary enrollment has beat projections.

In 2012, elementary enrollment was projected to decline to 3,278 students by the year 2015.*
Actual 2015 enrollment is 3,484 students (206 more students than projected.)

This year, the District required 153 elementary sections to prevent classes from operating above class size guidelines at the start of the year. The third day enrollment chart provided by the District illustrates that the class size policy passed last year is operating effectively and equitably.

* In 2012, a consultant hired by the District predicted total elementary enrollment would drop to 3,117 by the year 2017.  This means the District would have to lose over 350 elementary students in the next two years for this projection to hold true. In fact, actual enrollment has exceeded these projections by more than 150 students each year.

After months of study and meetings with parent groups, administrators in the North Allegheny School District thought they had found the perfect compromise for a policy to require criminal clearances for volunteers.

However, all that is changing because of Act 153, which was signed into law by Gov. Tom Corbett in late October. The law mandates updated clearances for all school employees and volunteers every 36 months
