When Dixon Unified leaders meet tonight, school district enrollments, projected five years into the future, and an update of the district’s administrative offices are on the agenda.
Adrian Vargas, the rural eastern Solano County district’s chief financial officer, will tell the five-member governing board that enrollments have steadily declined during the past five years, but that they will rise slightly in the coming five years.
Dixon Unified had 3,656 students in 2010 and 3,370 in 2014.
Vargas on Wednesday said a “moderate” enrollment projection indicates 3,317 students next year and 3,518 in 2019.
“It’s hard to pinpoint what enrollments will be” until students actually show up for classes in August every year, he said.
