Issues

Declined enrollment

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. In order to combat some of the problems associated with the decreased enrollment, Alice Ellington Elementary has been updated to accommodate students in grades K-8.[3]
