Statewide Public Schools-01 August 17, 2017   The Commonwealth Institute has completed its latest compilation of data on K-12 public schools in short, easy-to-read summary reports. We highlight enrollment, staffing, demographic, and funding trends for each of Virginia’s 132 school divisions and statewide. The analysis comes at a critical time as state lawmakers will be proposing a new two-year budget in which they will make key decisions that determine the future support for Virginia’s public schools.
