LAS VEGAS (AP) — Enrollment in the Clark County School District, which includes Las Vegas, has declined by more than 10,000 students during the start of the fall semester online.

Data show there are 307,210 students enrolled for the 2020 academic year compared to 317,893 students enrolled for the 2019 academic year, showing a drop of more than 10,600 students.

The figures show the third straight decline in enrollment since the district reached more than 321,000 students in 2017.

District officials had anticipated about 316,000 students this year, and depending on enrollment at each school, budget cuts are now expected. Each student brings in $6,100 in funding to the district.
