ALABAMA:       Enrollment in Alabama’s public schools has declined for the fifth year in a row, to 722,212 statewide, down from 726,924 last year, according to 2018-2019 enrollment numbers posted on the Alabama State Department of Education’s website.


Hispanic students, while representing only 8.4 percent of the student population statewide, are the fastest-growing student group, increasing from 4,012 students in the 1995-1996 school year to 60,976 students statewide during the current school year. That mirrors a national trend showing Hispanic student enrollment is increasing at higher rates than other racial or ethnic student populations.


AL.com took a look at enrollment data for 24 years, from 1995-1996 (the earliest year for which data is available) forward to the current school year. Statewide enrollment over the time period reviewed showed a peak of 741,115 during the 2009-2010 school year.


Some trends in student enrollment follow national trends, though Alabama is one of only a dozen or so states to see continued declines in public school enrollment overall.
