Summary Background Information:
In response to requests from principals, registrars, the Directors of School and Cabinet, the Choice Programming department has been working for the past 12 months on proposed improvements to the Open Enrollment policy to reflect best practices and improve neighborhood school enrollment and budget planning.

Rationale for Request:
The current Open Enrollment policy timelines do not provide
neighborhood schools with sufficient enrollment information for accurate enrollment projections and budgetary planning. In addition, the current policy does not adequately address mid-year transfers and home school students seeking to return to neighborhood schools.

Recommendation First reading does not require board action - Information only.
