How Many Students Are Enrolled In DCPS? 

I'm wondering what the total count is this year for students attending DCPS. All I can find right now is this article by David Lipscomb of the Washington Times saying that on the second day of school the number was 40,000, but this statistic is known to be incomplete because some facilities did not report.

Enrollment at the Doar School went from about 357 kids last year to 440 currently. If other charters experienced similar growth, plus the addition of five new schools this year, it could mean that charters now educate between 30% and 35% of all public school students in the District. Fantastic.
