How do school districts make decisions?

Students may be accepted into any Learning Community school with available space. Priority is given first to students who have a sibling in the same school (for the 2014-2015 school year) and then to students who contribute to socioeconomic diversity.

Every school district has an Open Enrollment Coordinator to help you. Find contact information here.
