This report presents the results of a demographic study conducted by the Portland State University Population Research Center (PRC) for Salem‐Keizer Public Schools (SKPS). The study includes analyses of population, housing and enrollment trends affecting the District in recent years, summaries of current and future housing development within SKPS, annual forecasts of district‐wide enrollment for the 20‐year period from 2022‐23 to 2041‐42 and individual school enrollments for the 5‐year period from 2022‐23 to 2026‐ 27 and for 2031‐32. District‐wide high, middle, and low forecasts for 2022‐23 differ by how many how many of the students who left SKPS schools during the COVID‐19 pandemic will return. Longer‐run forecasts differ by expected migration levels and the shares of SKPS kindergarten‐age residents enrolling in SKPS kindergartens.
