Washington, D.C. — The D.C. Public Charter School Board today announced that the unaudited enrollment count for the 2009-2010 school year is 27, 953, just shy of the 28,000 projected enrollment. This is an increase of 2,385 students for this school year – a 9 percent increase over last year.
“With this increase, charter schools continue to be an attractive option for parents in the District of Columbia,” said Tom Nida, D.C Public Charter School Board Chair. “While these are unaudited numbers, historically the final audited numbers usually fall within 1-2 percent of the unaudited numbers,” he said.
