Forecasting Student Population

The TPEG will contract with a school system, a planning agency, or a state to develop  5, 10, or up to 50-year student population forecasts.  Forecasts may be developed by grade level by school, and/or system and state level. 

If a client prefers to "make the forecasts themselves", then the we will bring a Student Population Forecasting Workshop to their organization.  We will work with either one person or a small group of planners, assistant superintendents, board members, the superintendent, and principals.  In this workshop we teach each participant how to develop, adjust and customize a forecasting model for the school district, region, or the state.  We issue each workshop participant an electronic version of the basic forecasting models.  The price for this service is $500.00 per person payable on the day of the workshop, and $1,375.00 in advance for travel and materials.
