This is the fourth annual report prepared by the Population Research Center (PRC) forecasting future enrollments for the Portland Public Schools (PPS). Previous annual reports were based on October 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 enrollments; this report considers October 2003 PPS enrollments. This report provides a district-wide Enrollment Forecast, Enrollment Forecasts for individual schools, and demographic information for Portland Public Schools. The report considers several factors that are likely to affect the school district's enrollments between the October 2003 and 2015, including the future number of births, net migrants, and the proportion of school-age children and youth enrolled in the public schools. This document provides the district-wide Enrollment Forecasts and an explanation of the methods and assumptions used to produce the forecasts. However, the forecasts for individual schools were subsequently revised to better reflect the changes in housing growth in Forest Park ES attendance area (Lincoln HS attendance area), the closing of Columbia Villa (Roosevelt HS attendance area) and the reconstruction of New Columbia. Use the tables in “Addendum to the Portland Public Schools Enrollment Forecast, 2005-2015 and Revised Forecast Tables”, August 2004 for the forecasts by school.
