Portland Public Schools has posted ”preliminary” enrollment data for 2017-18. In the following two tables I have tabulated the data for students enrolled in dual language immersion kindergartens in both 2016 and 2017.
The data shows 24 fewer kindergarteners in DLI programs in 2017. With a drop of 124 in kindergarten enrollment, the percentage of all kindergarteners enrollment only drops slightly (0.03%) to 18.38%.
PPS has not yet posted lottery data for 2017-18. In the 2016-17 lottery for kindergarten immersion slots 443 (10.9%) were turned away (here).
