Parents have until Feb. 24 at 4 p.m. to apply for the state’s open enrollment program that allows parents to choose the public school district their children will attend next school year.
Under the Public School Open Enrollment Program, parents must apply between Feb. 6 and Feb. 24 to attend a district in which they do not reside. Applications are for the 2006-07 school year. Parents may request that a child be enrolled in a specific program or school.
Applications must be submitted to the nonresident district to which the student is applying. Parents will be notified by the end of the first week in April if their child’s application to attend school in the nonresident district has been approved.
Application forms may be obtained from the Hamilton School District’s Public Information Office located at Hamilton High School, W220 N6151 Town Line Road, Sussex. For more information about the Open Enrollment Program, please contact coordinator Erica Bova-Brown at (262) 246-1973 ext. 1170. Information about the Open Enrollment Program is also available on the district’s web site at www.hamilton.k12.wi.us.
