The Iowa Dept. of Education publishes enrollment projections for each of the Iowa public school districts. Information below indicates that the state projections for Sergeant Bluff-Luton CSD have been short of the actual number of resident students enrolled.

In the 2010-11 School Year, SB-L had 1,380 resident students.  The State projected SB-L Schools to have 1,383 resident students by 2015-16.  In 2015-16, the District had 1,403 resident students enrolled.  This was 20 students more than the State projected.

In the 2011-12 School Year, SB-L had 1,339 resident students.  The State projected SB-L Schools to have 1,350 resident students by 2016-17.  In 216-17, the District had 1,422 resident students enrolled.  This was 72 students more than the State projected.

In the 2012-13 School Year, SB-L had 1,344 resident students.  The State projected SB-L Schools to experience a decline in resident students to 1,301 students by 2017-18.  The District actually grew during that time period and has 1,434 resident students for the 2017-18 school year.  The District resident enrollment is currently 133 students more than the state projected.

In the 2013-14 School Year, SB-L had 1,356 resident students.  The State projected SB-L Schools to have 1,323 students in the 2018-19 School Year.  However, the District already has 1,434 resident students for the 2017-18 school year.  The District is on pace to exceed the State projections by over 100 students.

The latest State enrollment projections for SB-L Schools was made during the 2016-17 school year in which enrollment was 1,422 resident students.  This  State projects SB-L resident student enrollment in 2021-22 to be 1,442. The District is concerned that since the state projections have been under-predicting SB-L Resident enrollment by a significant amount of students.  If this trend continues, District facilities would not have the necessary capacity.
