After a period of slow growth in the late 1990s, total enrollment in the North Marion School District (NMSD) has grown by an average of 2.5 percent annually over the most recent six years from 2000-01 to 2006-07. During the period, all schools have added enrollment, and the K-12 total has increased by 270 students, from 1,670 to 1,940. This report presents the results of a forecast conducted by the Portland State University Population Research Center (PRC) indicating that overall NMSD enrollment will continue to increase during the next 10 years, with the greatest initial (five year) growth in primary and elementary grades, subsequent growth in middle school, and relatively slow growth in high school within the 10 year forecast horizon.
