Official enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year is 20,912 Rockwood students in grades K-12. The last Wednesday of September is considered "Count Day" across Missouri, which is the date when all school districts officially count and report student enrollment to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
In April 2017, Rockwood voters approved a $95.5 million bond issue that did not raise the current tax rate for Rockwood property owners. According to Rockwood Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles, over 2,000 homes are expected to be built in the district in the next four years. The bond issue will help the district manage our student enrollment, while continuing the academic focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in education.
