Impact on Trumbull Schools

School Age Children in Apartments 

We understand that the major concern for most municipalities is the impact residential housing and apartments have on the municipal budget. It is important to estimate the compliment of school age children per complex. The standard has been to utilize the 2006 Rutgers Study which analyzed the number of school age children in multifamily housing. The study included an analysis of Connecticut. In July of 2018 Rutgers University published a revised study of school age children in multifamily apartments. It reflected students per unit by Apartment style, Income, and unit type.

According to the revised study, the Residences at Main, Trumbull, given the particular style, projected income level and unit type would produce 27 school-age children based on 64 one-bedroom, 196 two-bedroom market rate units, totaling 260 units.
