Summary

Information used to prepare this report on Colorado's public school enrollment was collected from the state's public school districts. In fall 1996, there were 673,438 students in Colorado's public schools, an increase of 17,159 students (2.6%) over the fall 1995 membership. Membership increased by 9.9% from fall 1992 to fall 1996, and this increase was evident in both elementary and secondary grades. Membership of minority students increased by 20.6% between 1992 and 1996, while that of white students increased by 6.3%. Native Americans, Asians, Blacks, and Hispanics represented 28% of the fall 1996 student membership, while these same groups made up only 9% of the state's teachers. The 10 largest school districts in Colorado account for 54.7% of the total membership, and they accounted for 51.1% of the enrollment growth between 1992 and 1996. In fact, the Denver metropolitan area included 53.7% of the state's total membership in public schools. The fall 1996 student-teacher ratio of 18.5 to 1 did not change from fall 1995. It is also noted that the state's graduation rate for 1996 was 77.7%. (Contains nine tables.) (SLD)
