The pupil enrollment count date is Oct. 1 of each year, unless that date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or major religious holiday. If the pupil enrollment count date falls on one of those days, the pupil enrollment count date will be the following school day. On that day, District 49 collects its October student count data for the Colorado Department of Education. This information is needed for the required student level data provided by state statute, including student funding eligibility as outlined in the Public School Finance Act of 1994, as amended (22-54-101, C.R.S.).
