Richard S. Grip Ed.D.

Dr. Richard S. Grip, Executive Director of Statistical Forecasting, possesses a Doctorate in Educational Statistics and Measurement from Rutgers University in New Jersey. His dissertation, Prediction of Public School Enrollments Using the Modified Regression Technique, demonstrated an alternative method to the Cohort Survival Ratio Method in predicting school enrollments.  

As a recognized leader and expert in the field, Dr. Grip has testified as an expert witness in school demography in several court cases on issues related to school districts terminating their sending-receiving relationship.  Dr. Grip has written numerous papers on topics in school demography and has presented his findings at regional and national conferences.  Dr. Grip's latest research paper consisted of applying prediction bands or confidence intervals when projecting enrollments.
