Tucson Unified Changes Student Enrollment Trend

August 22, 2019

Tucson Unified School District has successfully changed the enrollment trend from the last few years and is retaining more students. The District has completed the legally required 10-day drop/withdrawal process that includes the formal withdrawal of those students absent from school for the first ten consecutive days of the school year. As of August 21, 2019, the fifteenth day of the school year, the District's total enrollment is at 45,305 students, including pre-school. Our enrollment is 270 students lower than the 40th-day report from 2018-19 school year, during which the District reported a loss of 1,272 students from the previous year. This represents a significant reduction in enrollment loss for the district year-over-year.

Dr. Gabriel Trujillo, TUSD Superintendent, shared "I am very proud of all the hard work our staff and community have done over the last two years. I feel great pride in being able to say that for the 2019-2020 school year more families are choosing Tucson Unified schools. I would like to thank the Enrollment Task Force for its hard work and recommendations, the enrollment specialists that staffed our schools and served our parents this summer, and all of our site administrators, teachers, and parents that went well above and beyond the call of duty in championing and promoting our schools throughout the spring and summer. Your work has helped to change the narrative about the enrollment loss in the Tucson Unified School District."

Today's enrollment number represents the smallest enrollment decrease for the first 15 days of school in the last five years. The next enrollment data evaluations will be at the 40th and 100th day of school.
