The most recent high water mark for enrollment in the Pittsfield Public Schools was 7,000 students in 1996.
That number is down to 5,491. Schools like Morningside had 658 students then and now have just 374. Conte had 540 and now has 367. Reid Middle School had 803 students compared to 552 today.
The town this week mailed out the annual Street Listing Form. The data collected from that survey helps inform the elementary school about how many children to expect in each year's incoming kindergarten class.
The Adams-Cheshire Regional School District is down 7 percent in enrollment.
According to Oct. 1 preliminary enrollment numbers, the district dropped 98 students, from 1,318 down to 1,220. This year's enrollment numbers are down more than 300 since 2010.
Williamstown Elementary School's enrollment saw a dramatic increase over the summer, but school officials were able to find the money to hire new teachers without cutting programming at the K-through-6 school.
