In March 2018, Isle of Wight County Schools contracted with Cooperative Strategies to conduct a subdivision and student potential analysis. This analysis is the result of collection, review, and analysis of student demographics, migration, and housing information for IWCS. The need for student demographics and analysis stems mainly from new residential development which has the potential to yield a significant number of students. The County’s comprehensive plan is currently being updated. As a result of the steadily increasing enrollment and new residential development on the horizon, the Division has a real need for a student potential analysis. With this analysis, IWCS will be better equipped to make decisions regarding future potential increases in enrollment.
