At the Board of Trustees meeting held on December 11, 2017, the Orinda Union School District Board approved a contract with Davis Demographics & Planning, Inc. (DDP) to provide seven-year residence enrollment forecasts and two-year enrollment forecasts by the school. These forecasts involve student projections and analysis of demographic data relevant to the District’s facility planning efforts. The scope of contracted work included: mapping the District, address matching the current student file, developing and researching pertinent demographic data, identifying future residential development plans, and developing a seven-year student population projection. DDP will also assist the District in developing solutions for housing future student populations.
Additionally, this study was prepared to assist the District’s efforts in evaluating future site requirements and possible attendance area changes in conjunction with its ongoing Facility Master Plan Committee.
It is important to remember that the report is a snapshot of the current and potential student population based on data gathered in Fall of 2017. Population demographics change, development plans change, funding opportunities can change, District priorities can change, and therefore, new projections and adjustments to the overall Master Plan will continue to be necessary for the future.
