Student enrollment in the Livingstone Range School Division for the 2016-2017 school year has increased for the first time since 1997.
Jeff Perry, the division’s associate superintendent for business services, presented the enrollment numbers to the board of trustees at their Oct. 18 meeting. “This year was a very positive note for the jurisdiction,” he said. 
The total enrollment increased 1.5 per cent, and, as of Sept. 30, is 3,445 students, increasing by 49.5 full-time equivalent students from last year. The enrollment has increased 107 students over projections.
“These numbers are better than the preliminary (enrollment figures),” Perry said.
Enrollment is calculated with each student from Grade 1 to 12 counted one as one Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) student, and Kindergarten students each counting as 0.5 FTE students.
