FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER UPDATE

All three Family Resource Centers are open and available to assist with in-person services from 8:30 AM – 3 PM.

 

FALL TRANSFERS BEGIN MONDAY, 8/30

The Fall Transfer window is for families seeking to change schools.  This process applies only to students that are enrolled in the same school this year as they were last year. These families must:

1.  Visit a Family Resource Center and notify a School Choice Advisor (SCA) of their desire to transfer. The SCA will email the school and start the transfer request process.

2. The current school will schedule a meeting to discuss the transfer request with the family. Once the meeting takes place, the school notifies the SCA  of the meeting outcome. If a parent still wishes to transfer, the SCA will be notified.

2. The family must return to the Family Resource Center to choose a school with available seats. The transfer process and registration at the new school must be completed within five school days.

 

IN-PERSON SUMMER ENROLLMENT BEGINS AUG 16

Families of children K-12 who are new to the district or didn’t participate in OneApp Main Round or Round 2 will need to participate in Summer Enrollment. Starting Monday, August 16, 2021, the Summer Enrollment process for K-12 students will move to in-person only.

Families seeking infant to Pre-K 4 placements will follow the same virtual OPEN ENROLLMENT process currently in place. (See Open Enrollment info below)

Families still in need of a school may visit one of three Family Resource Centers around the city. Parents must bring ID to receive service and are reminded to bring all necessary documents needed for enrollment. Our Family Resource Centers will be open from 8:30 am- 3 pm at the following locations:

All three of our centers will be following COVID safety precautions to keep families, students, and staff safe. All visitors will be required to wear a mask.
