Wake forwarded the Day 5 numbers over the weekend and they show that the district is still a long way from reaching enrollment projections.
Wake had 136,060 students on Friday, 4,025 more kids than the same time last year. But Wake would need to gain 3,187 students by Day 20 on Sept. 22 to reach the revised estimate of 139,247 students.
Wake only picked up 1,967 students between Day 5 and Day 20 last school year.
To no one's surprise, Wake now officially has more students than last school year. Wake's official 2007-08 enrollment was 134,002 students.
Based on Day 5, Wake has 66,835 elementary students, 30,559 middle school students and 38,666 high school students. The "other students," kids in places like Longview, were apparently folded into the other categories.
Under the revised projections, Wake is supposed to have 68,304 elementary students, 31,136 middle school students, 39,493 high school students and 314 other students.
