DCPS Enrollment: 40,179
As of 9 a.m. today, D.C. public school enrollment stood at 40,179, according to Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee's office. That's a significant bump over the 37,000 reported by officials just before the beginning of the academic year on Monday. The increase is the product of late arrivals and more students and families who have completed paperwork verifying District residency. The number will continue to be a moving target, and most likely will grow into the fall. The District takes its official count in early October (last year it was Oct. 6) and hires a private CPA firm to audit the results, making sure that every student counted has proper documentation. The final census is usually available around the middle of March. Rhee and the D.C Council have established 44,681--last year's audited number--as its projected population for the 2009-10 school year.
