Azusa Unified School District has experienced a significant decrease in student enrollment since the 2006-07 school year. During the 2006-07 school year 11,353 students were enrolled at Azusa Unified schools, while in the 2011-12 school year 10,163 students were enrolled. The decrease of almost 1,200 students has resulted in decreased funding from both state and federal sources.
