We measure and report student enrollment using two different measures – audit count and ever enrolled.
The audit enrollment count is the number of students enrolled in public schools in the District on a specific date in the early fall. The ever enrolled count is the total number of students who are enrolled at any point during the school year; a student who attends a school for one day or 180 days is counted the same way. For this reason, the ever-enrolled count will always be larger than the audit count. You can filter by ward and click different tabs for sector (DC-Overall, DCPS, or public charter schools).
In the graphs below you can use the filter to view each of the data displays by ward and you can click different tabs to view graphs by DC-Overall or by sector (DCPS or public charter schools). This new User Guide provides additional information about how to use and fully explore the data in the DC School Report Card site.
