ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Abilene ISD has reported a loss in enrollment once again, marking the 6th year that's seen a student body decrease. For the 2022-23 school year, 15,312 students were enrolled in AISD, down from 17,133 for the 2016-17 school year. The Abilene ISD School Board released the statistics during a meeting earlier this week, where they said that despite the decreased enrollment, teacher and staff presence has remained the same, with about 2,500 employees across the district. 42% of these employees are teachers, 15% are administrative, 21% are auxiliary staff like bus drivers and maintenance, 20% are professional, and just under 3% are clerical.
