St. Paul educators going door-to-door to enroll more students

Jun 23, 2018 by

Ten educators will canvass the neighborhoods of nine under-enrolled schools this summer in hopes of bringing students — and state money — back to St. Paul Public Schools.

Amid increased competition from charter and suburban district schools, St. Paul has lost about 1,000 students in the past three years, or 2.7 percent of its K-12 enrollment.

Those students represent at least $6.3 million in state funding next year alone.

Over six weeks starting Monday, trained canvassers aim to knock on 10,000 doors and have 2,500 conversations about what the public schools have to offer. Some of that outreach will target families who have pulled their children out of district schools.

There is no formal goal for how many will enroll.
