The Greendale School District has limited openings for new students wanting to attend Greendale Schools.
Their board approved 13 seats in the 6th grade and three seats in the 7th grade at their meeting last week. Parents of children at those grade levels living outside of the Greendale School District can send their child to a Greendale School, but they will need to apply through the open enrollment program.
The district will accept students only if there is available space in each grade level, and parents will need to provide transportation to and from the school. The Department of Public Instruction has online applications for open enrollment, which will be accepted from Feb. 4 through April 30.
The district also has a computer available to use and paper applications can be picked up at the Greendale District Office, which is located at 6801 Southway.
Parents must submit paper applications no earlier than February 4 and no later than 4 p.m. on April 30, 2013. A postmark does not meet this requirement.
According to the school district website:
Applications for the Open Enrollment Program must be submitted in the nonresident district. Please note that state law requires that we strictly adhere to these application dates. Further information about Open Enrollment is available at the Public School Open Enrollment Homepage. Students currently attending our schools under Open Enrollment do not need to reapply unless notified to do so, however, students currently attending under a Tuition Waiver must apply for Open Enrollment during the application period. Please realize that Tuition Waiver students are not guaranteed an Open Enrollment seat. In addition, if you move before the end of the year, we will help you complete necessary paper work for your child to continue in our school district until the year ends.
