Family Interest Tracker Helps Schools Manage Growth

Posted August 4, 2014

From the school years beginning 1999–2000 through 2011–12, the percentage of all public schools that were public charter schools increased from 1.7% to 5.8%, and the total number of public charter schools increased from 1,500 to 5,700.

In addition to increasing in number, charter schools have generally increased in enrollment size over time. In that same time period, 1999 to 2012, the number of students enrolled in public charter schools increased from 0.3 million to 2.1 million. During this period, the percentage of public school students who attended charter schools increased from 0.7% to 4.2%.

Today, SchoolMint launches the Family Interest Tracker – a premium feature to help schools manage their growth more effectively by providing a short interest form that parents can fill out from their laptop or mobile device.
