  1. This table and the PDF documents linked above are a statistical "APPROXIMATION", SUBJECT TO CHANGE. They are an overview based on the 2000 Census, but do not reflect conditions at the time that AUSD will become a reality.

    It is important to note that this is an initial projection and that more detailed and accurate projections are expected to be made by the feasibility study that will be performed when the signed petitions are received by the County Office of Education.

  2. The table and PDF maps show projected AUSD enrollment based on where students live in relationship to Altadena schools., with the average student living less than a mile from the school he or she attends. This initial projection shows that nearly all elementary students would live within walking distance of their school as would a significant percentage of high school students.

  3. As the new AUSD succeeds in its recruitment, development, and retention of educators who have closed the achievement gap elsewhere and do so again at AUSD schools, AUSD would likely see more students attending its schools. The California state average for the number of students attending private schools is 10%. In Altadena it is estimated that approximately 33.33% of students attend private school.


  1. Public/private school attendance estimated at 66.66%/33.33%.

  2. Distances calculated with orthogonal travel only N/S - E/W (except where streets rotated, orthogonal travel rotated).

  3. No attempt was made to correct for streets that do not go through.

  4. No attempt was made to correct for mountain road distances

  5. Distance calculations assume all students in a census block are at the same location within the block.

  6. Max and min distances are approximations based on calculation method.

  7. Average distance assumes uniform public/private school ratio across district.

  8. School Assignments are arbitrary for balancing students to existing enrollment (see maps)

  9. Existing enrollment shown is from CBEDS October 2004 data for PUSD

  10. Likely the first couple of years of AUSD will have lower high school enrollment as some students will opt to finish at their present high school.

  11. All information is preliminary and approximate and SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
