Projecting your Average Daily Membership (ADM) is a critical piece in estimating General Education revenue. While there is no way to predict exactly how many students you will have each year, there are some tools that can help you determine if your numbers are "reasonable". This session provides a brief description of the types of pupil units and where they are used. We review tools that look at historical Adjusted ADM and estimate future year Adjusted ADM. This can be used for budgeting General Education revenue in a future year. We also look at fall enrollment and estimate end of year Adjusted ADM to assist with budget revisions.
