Additional School Choice Information
  • Although we accept students under school choice, the number of slots per grade level varies on a yearly basis. We try to treat all requests equitably and cannot make any commitments until the school committee determines how many slots, if any, are available at each grade level.
  • There is no cost to you for sending your child to our district.
  • Applications are not based on a first-come first-serve basis. If there are slots available and there are more students looking to get in than there are seats available it then becomes a lottery.
  • Once a child is accepted into the District under school choice he/she may continue to attend school until they graduate.
  • If you have a child already enrolled in the District under school choice, his/her sibling shall receive priority for admission if there are school choice slots available.
  • Applications are not discriminated against on the basis of physical handicap or special needs.
  • Parents are encouraged to have a back-up plan if their child is NOT accepted.
  • Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 76, Section 12B (j) permits public schools to establish terms for accepting nonresident choice students.
  • Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 71, Section 37L; Chapter 71, Section 37H (e); permits public schools to review the student’s complete school record.
