In the coming months, the Los Alamos Board of Education will be considering if something should be done, if anything, about the declining, in-district student population in Los Alamos Public Schools.
The decline in enrollment was pointed out during a presentation and an accompanying report to the Los Alamos Board of Education by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gene Schmidt and Assistant Superintendent of Schools Gerry Washburn.
While the decline is not a severe one, (2.69 percent since 2012) Washburn and Schmidt projected the enrollment decline out over five years to demonstrate what could happen to their funding if the trend continues.
“Mr. Washburn developed a five-year look ahead that illustrates the impact from a 2 percent, 3 percent and 5 percent decline in enrollment. Each decline in enrollment will be accompanied by a reduction in state funding.
