Response Notes

Responsive to this request, the official enrollment report annually submitted to the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) does not yet exist for September 30, 2018 (this year it will fall on September 28). This data is compiled specifically for this report and not typically done until late fall. Please note, under the MPIA process, and as advised in the Fourteenth Edition of the Maryland Public Information Act Manual created by Maryland’s Office of the Attorney General, an agency is only obligated to produce existing records and is not required to generate new data or summarize data.

For reference, existing data on HCPSS enrollment counts – from which the basis for the MSDE report will eventually be derived – can be found monthly on our website with the most recent report from September 28, 2018: https://www.hcpss.org/schools/enrollment-reports/
