Charter and District School Demographics

Enrollment and Demographic Trends for MN Charter and District Public Schools

For many years, CSC has analyzed data submitted to the Minnesota Department of Education on student enrollment. This analysis shows the trends and demographics of student enrollment in Minnesota, Minneapolis and St. Paul district and charter public schools.  The analysis compares overall enrollment, and enrollment by race/ethnicity, free/reduced lunch, special education, and limited English proficiency.
