A Statistical Snapshot of the School District

Here’s a quick statistical snapshot of our district. You can see a steady  decline in total enrollment since fall 2007.  Teacher/student ratios are also changing.  In 2004-2005 we had one teacher to 12 students and one assistant to 24 students.  In 2010-2011, there was one teacher to 10.5 students and one assistant for every 22.5 students.  Enrollment went down again in 2011-2012.

Don’t miss clicking on the link to Timberlane’s budget growth from 2004 to 2013  (approx. 38%)  along with the SAU’s budget (40.75% in 9 years).

    So in 2004 it cost 11K per student and now it costs 16K per student??

    • Thanks for doing the math, Nathan. I get
      $10,067.75 per student in 2004-05 (46,643,882 divided by 4633)

      $15,094.14 per student in 2011-2012 (62,821,817 divided by 4162)
      That’s a 50% increase in 9 years for declining educational results. Most of the school in the Timberlane district are designated by the federal government as “In need of improvement,” as is the district generally.

        It is actually a 50% increase in 7 years. during which there was little inflation. Nationally
