Demographic Study (The Statistical Study of Populations)
I have been at Elder Grove for 15 years. During this time I have seen Elder Grove grow from just over 300 students to its present population of 565 students. We project our student population to be 585 students next year. Fifteen years ago most of our students came from farms or houses spread throughout our rural community. Today, most of our students come from suburban communities with only a few coming from farms. Through statistical analysis, demographic studies can project changes in population. With our rapidly growing student population, the board followed my recommendation to do such a study to determine what the growth of our school district will probably be in 5 years, 10 years and 15 years.

What we found is no surprise. There will be substantial growth in the next 5 years, beginning immediately with even more rapid growth in the next 10-15 years. Surprisingly, our Demographic Study is already out-of-date with growth happening faster than anticipated. Please look through the Demographic Study to look at the future of Elder Grove’s district.
