DOE Enrollments 22-23


Recommended Posts

The DOE released enrollment data earlier this month from the fall count day for the 22-23 school year.  Here are the enrollments for each school for grades 9-12.  I made a tentative split for each class just to give an idea where they could be, but this is not a realignment year.  The fall ‘23 count day will be used for the next realignment.  Schools with an * did not report their data to the DOE, so their enrollments are listed as the same as the number they gave the IHSAA last year.  I included Indianapolis Irvington and Fort Wayne Blackhawk Christian since both are planning to move to 11 man football and they are tournament eligible schools.  I put Cathedral in 6A since they already have enough success factor points to stay up in the next cycle.

By this count, Harrison has now passed Jeff as the largest school in Tippecanoe County.  In addition, the Jeff number is decreasing and the Harrison number is increasing.  By the time of realignment or the next one after that, Jeff could be classified 5A.  Could provide an interesting mix in 5A.

There are several schools right at the 5A/6A split that are within 100 students of each other.  Almost all of them are capable of making a run in 5A but probably don’t go very far in 6A.  Lafayette Jeff’s enrollment has actually been up the last two years from what it was for the previous 10 years of 2012-2021.  They were pretty stagnant at around 1950-2050 students during that 10 year period, but they’ve been over 2100 the last two years.  Harrison’s enrollment stayed right around 1675 from 2007-2012, then took off and has grown pretty steadily since 2013, increasing by about 50 students per year.

Jeff's numbers were up in the last decade or so, but the recent numbers that you showed for DOE are down about 40 from last year's numbers.  It's only a couple percent drop, but given that Harrison jumped up by 57, also giving it a 100-student net, and McCutcheon crept up, even if by just 8, giving it a near 50-student net against Jeff, it was still an upward creep ... worth watching.  West Lafayette, by contrast, like Jeff, also saw a decrease of around 24 students since the last alignment.  By contrast, LCC held close to even at -2.  Faith Christian was around 232 in the last alignment, but they don't show up in the numbers above since Faith doesn't field/play football.

The trending seems to be pointing toward boundary-locked areas like WL and LSC seeing decreases or, at best, staying even and the more open-boundaried districts, the county schools, showing growth.  It's a small sample size with just two county schools, two "city schools," and two p/p schools, so take the trending with a grain of salt ... especially given that Harrison has a couple of brand-new housing divisions starting to put up house.  Word on the street is that may likely add up to 300-households just between those new housing tracts.

Warsaw looks like it dropped down a bit from last alignment, with , Jeffersonville, Merrillville, FW Northrop, and Valpo with an increase and DC seeing a HUGE jump with some 200+ kids added.  I'd seen estimates from others about Whiteland jumping up in numbers, but it looks like they saw a decent drop since last alignment numbers dropping about 153 students.

Faith is at 245 this year.

I was also a bit surprised to see Whiteland’s number down quite a bit from their recent trend.  It was nice to see some “new blood” in the 5A and 6A finals this year with Whiteland and Carroll.  Harrison has grown just like those two schools but needs a breakthrough in the tournament to really take the next step with their program.

What's interesting is that Faith fits with the idea of a "county school"; sitting on the "other side" of 65 and actually within the TSC boundaries.  That provides a little more substance to the idea of county growth vs. city decline with Faith, Harrison, and McCutcheon showing growth and LCC and Jeff, within LCS boundaries, and West Lafayette, in its own city school district showing degrees of decline.

In my opinion, Harrison should have taken that step this season and should have won at least a sectional and regional.  You have to give Plainfield credit for their sectional pickup against Harrison.  They hung close and just waited for Harrison to hand over the ball.  Turnovers were the difference this season from being undefeated going into a semi-state game with Whiteland and dropping the first and last game of the season and departing the sectionals way too early.

Urban Sprawl.  Lovely to see it in Tippecanoe county.

Keep it there.

Someone have any inside information on Madison Consolidated? (SE corner of the state.) 

2019- 2020 they were 867 (4A) with over 200 students in each grade.

https://ihsaapublic.blob.core.windows.net/portals/0/ihsaa/documents/quick resources/Enrollments & Classifications/Enrollments 19202021.pdf

They lost 130 students in enrollment and dropped to 3A with 737. 

https://www.ihsaa.org/sites/default/files/documents/2022-23 2023-24 Football Alignment.pdf

The numbers above show them at 847. 

I’m sure there’s a logical reason, I just am wondering what causes 20-30 students in each grade to disappear/reappear in the counts.

For the two year period of 2020-21 and 2021-22, Madison Consolidated Schools had the E.O. Muncie Jr/Sr High School, which I think was an alternative school, in addition to Madison Consolidated High School.  They reported the enrollment of the alternative school separately from MCHS.  The school had about 75 students last year.  If you add those students into the enrollment of MCHS, it puts the enrollment back at 815, which is in the ballpark of the MCHS enrollment prior to the last two years.  Those are the 20-30 students in each class who disappeared/reappeared.  Their enrollment this year is back up to 200 or so in each class, and they have a pretty large freshman class at 243.

Thanks. I figured there was some reason like that but was just curious. 

I was trying to sketch out the 3A sectionals and they are in 32. Had a heck of a drive to Heritage Hills last year for round 1. 

Evv Mater Dei could win regional next year and be success factored up to 3A which would cause reshuffling of the southern sectionals as well.

For my area close to alot of changes. Paoli close to 1A. Salem close to 2A. Perry Central from 1A to mid 2 very quickly. Brownstown just recently dropped from 3 to 2. Be curious how 1 more year does for these schools before realignment.

I agree wilh you on Whiteland was surprised to see that as well.

I know my opinion does not mean much but, i have always believed that the count for class should be done for males and females sports separate not just one number for both

FWIW - I believe this year's Warsaw senior class is fairly small and their incoming freshman class next year is larger. It will be interesting to see where they end up as I expect their overall enrollment in the count that COUNTS next year will be more than 2,096 number here. How much more will be the question, and how much others gain/lose obviously.

For fun, if this was 5A next go around, here is what I would have as the sectional assignments

Sectional 9: Hammond Central, Hammond Morton, Merrillville, Munster
Sectional 10: Chesterton, LaPorte, Michigan City, Valparaiso
Sectional 11: Concord, Goshen, Mishawaka, SB Adams
Sectional 12: Anderson, FW North, FW Snider, Warsaw

Sectional 13: Decatur Central, Kokomo, McCutcheon, Plainfield
Sectional 14: Bloomington North, Bloomington South, Franklin, Whiteland
Sectional 15: Columbus East, Floyd Central, New Albany, Seymour
Sectional 16: Castle, Evansville North, TH North, TH South

Given the numbers and given that Valpo only needs a regional next year to bump up to 6A, that would switch Jeff and Valpo in Sectional 10.  That would likely push Jeff toward the front of the pack out of 5A North with Merrillville and FW Snider.

A state title for Snider could push both the Vikings and the Panthers up to 6A. A rematch with Snider and Valpo in 2023 is looking very likely with the players that return for each team.  I could see Dwenger going down to 4A leaving 5A north with Jeff, Merrillville, and North Side. Then the winner gets Cathedral.

Cathedral already has enough points, earning two this season with a regional victory over Brownsburg, to stay in 6A for the next alignment cycle.  The $64,000 question is whether they have learned enough and shored up the foundation enough to make continuous sectional victories status quo and remain a fixture in the 32-team Battle Royale of 6A.  That changes the 5A outlook ... especially with some of the glimpses of teams like Whiteland, DC, and even Plainfield.

Either way, it would be good to see Jeff at the 5A level competing with programs similar in enrollment. It's one thing to find some dudes to compete at the 6A level with a student body of 2800. Fielding a team at a 2100 enrollment level is a bit more challenging.

look at the Bombers back down at 468 from 526 that got us stuck in 3a this past year.    So it goes 

That looks to be a distressingly large drop in enrollment over a relatively short amount of time.

on the other side of the spectrum, it looks as if Charlestown has increased from 717 to 788 to jump from solid 3A into 4A.  Very distressing !

Maybe this is a dumb question. Next year's enrollment, 2023-2024, will set the newest classifications for 2024-2025 and 2025-2026. Do they use 23-24's grade 9-12 enrollment numbers or do they use grade 8-11 since those are the ones that will begin the new cycle?

HoopsCoach, if I remember right Dugger Union was going to play 11 man football this last year and right before the season changed to 8 man football. Do you have any information saying one way or the other what they are doing next year?

I don’t know anything for sure about Dugger Union.  I think their goal is to play 11 man football, but if their numbers are low they will do 8 man to keep the program going like they did this past season.  I included Anderson Prep in the enrollment data since they have had a team, but they didn’t play this past season.  I left Greenwood Christian out when I posted this, but they have an enrollment of 201 this year and would be an addition to 1A.

Enrollment numbers for grades 9-12 are used.  Not every high school has an 8th grade that directly feeds into their school, so it would be difficult to use 8th grade data.  I think the initial enrollment data used when the transition was made to class basketball only included grades 9-11.
