The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction released Month 1 Average Daily Membership (ADM) numbers today.

The Month 1 numbers can be somewhat misleading because student transfers often occur during the initial month of school. The Month 2 figures tend to be a more accurate representation of enrollment.

Here is how they stack up compared to last year:

2021-22 School Year

District: 1,347,814 (+10,548)

Charter: 130,485 (+5,266)

Other: 1,420 (+2)

2020-21 School Year

District: 1,337,266

Charter: 125,219

Other: 1,418
