Lecture Gross Enrollment Needs

Calculates the lecture gross enrollment needs on a campus by campus basis from y1-y5 based on total enrollment at each campus. First, forecast WSCH for each district is multiplied by the campus WSCH percentages for each year, to get the campus WSCH for a given year. Then a logical test is applied. If the campus WSCH is greater than 140,000, then the campus is considered a large campus and the gross enrollment need will equal the campus WSCH * .429. If the campus WSCH is less than 140,000, then the campus is considered a small campus and the gross enrollment need will equal the campus WSCH * .472. These results are then output as campus WSCH by year and lecture gross enrollment need by year.
