BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- An early look at future enrollment in Bronxville schools estimates that the K-12 population will grow less than one percent in 2014, a projection that determines staffing levels in the proposed school budget.

F.A.C.T.S Presentation Services prepared the preliminary estimates, reflecting historical patterns and incorporating population trends, resident live births, and non-public school enrollment. They will be finalized in early 2014 as additional information is gathered.

The current year addressed enrollment issues by adding two teachers, one at kindergarten and one at the Middle School. There may be similar adjustments this year based on the distribution of students at each grade level and as a way to anticipate any inaccuracies in the estimates.

The initial 2014-15 school budget will be presented no later than Feb. 1, 2014.

Board policy states a preference for each class to have less than 25 students but acknowledges that there will be variation both above and below that figure.

It is also important to acknowledge the other cost implications of increasing the number of sections, such as space needs and the corresponding need to add staffing for required special subjects like art, physical education and music.
