The Long Range Projection is derived from the K-12
Basic Education forecast and Office of Financial Management's (OFM) state population forecast. It includes K-12, private and home-based school enrollment, summer
school enrollment, Running Start, and UW Transition
Program enrollment components for a period beyond the
current standard budget forecast. The projection is
expressed in terms of full time equivalents (FTE) and
headcounts (HC): one FTE is the equivalent of one student
attending school full-time.
The Long Range Projection is based on participation rates
which are then applied to the OFM population forecast.
