District Figures Show Slight Enrollment Rise
Placeholder Image
Student enrollment numbers are slightly up compared to last year after the first few weeks of school in the Riverbank Unified School District (RUSD).

School started Aug. 8 and RUSD Child Welfare Attendance Liaison Jose Madrigal supplied enrollment numbers on Aug 23. Enrollment at the end of the first two weeks of school shows that a total of 2,768 students are enrolled in the district. Last year, the enrollment was 2,676 students.

It typically takes a week or two for enrollment numbers to settle, as numbers can fluctuate for the first week because school sites are still enrolling students and families that moved over the summer usually don't notify the district.

As of Aug. 23, for the elementary schools, California Avenue has 531 students enrolled and Mesa Verde has 499 students. Riverbank Language Academy, a kindergarten through eighth grade school, has 475 students enrolled. Cardozo Middle School has an enrollment of 498 students. Adelante High School, which is tenth through twelfth grades, has 68 students. Riverbank High School has an enrollment of 697 students.

There are a total of 225 students in kindergarten classes in the district, with 39 of those being transitional kindergarten (TK) classes.

"Riverbank USD will continue to offer a transitional kindergarten experience to students at both California Avenue and Mesa Verde elementary schools," said Interim Superintendent Dr. Daryl Camp. "We have excellent and experienced teachers at both schools and around 19 students in each TK class."

The largest K-12 class in the district is the fourth grade class with a total of 252 students.
