Enrollment In New York Public Schools At Lowest Numbers Since Early 90’s

Local News

As students in the Cortland and Homer school districts return for another year of classes, a new report shows that public school enrollment across New York State is lower than it’s been since the early 1990’s.

Data was compiled over a 10-year period by the Empire Center, a non-profit organization based in Albany.

From 2008-09 to 2018-19, Cortland City School District saw a more than 14% drop in its enrollment numbers (-14.36%). Homer schools saw a drop of just under 12% in that time (-11.69%).

Experts say there are several combined factors that have led to declining enrollment statewide, but that much of it can be associated with a high amount of residents moving out of New York State.
