About 41,000 of the students – or 6 percent of the population – are enrolled in fiscally independent charter schools. Charter schools reduced enrollment at traditional LAUSD schools by about 1 percent per year. District officials attribute the drop to a decline in births in Los Angeles County, which have declined sharply since 1990 but have now stabilized.
