Public School Enrollment Data

Enrollment is a headcount of students receiving primary educational services from a school district as of the 3rd Friday in September.

About the files

All public enrollment reports start with PE in the file name. The last two digits of the file name indicate the end of the school year. For example, 01 represents the 2000-2001 school year. Data is provided at various levels, such as statewide, district, or school. The data was collected from school districts as part of the ISES (Individual Student Enrollment System) based on WSLS (Wisconsin Student Number Locator System).

Disclaimers and Errata

  • For school year 2004-2005, major changes in Wisconsin data collection systems were implemented. The 2004-05 enrollment data were included in this transition year collection and are not comprehensive and so should be interpreted with caution.
