KUSD had projected a decrease of one hundred thirty-six students based on a Board report from February. For the past decade the KUSD boundary area has averaged a decrease of approximately 160 students each year due to the decreased birth rate.
The enrollment number is used by the state to determine the amount of funding KUSD receives from the state and can levy locally.
