School Choice Office Announces the New Schools and Opportunities (NSO) Lottery

 
We have exciting news to share with you today.   The Connecticut State Department of Education recently asked Hartford Public Schools to open or expand several of their schools.  Based on that request, Hartford Public Schools is expanding the portfolio of schools and offering additional opportunities in six magnet schools. 
The New Schools and Opportunities (NSO) Lottery will include the following Hartford Public Schools:
·         Hartford Pre-Kindergarten Magnet School – PK3 and PK4 seats for Hartford and Suburban students
·         Montessori Magnet at Moylan School – PK3 & PK4 for Hartford students, PK3 for Suburban students
·         Betances Early Reading Lab – PK3-Grade 1 for Suburban students
·         Betances STEM Magnet School – Grade 4 & Grade 5 for Suburban students
·         Breakthrough II Magnet School – PK3 – Grade 4 for Suburban students
·         Hartford Journalism and Media Magnet School  – Grade 9 for Hartford & Suburban Students
The NSO Lottery opened at 3:00 p.m. on April 8, 2013 and will close on April 29, 2013 at 11:59 pm.   A schedule of Open Houses, held to give you the opportunity to meet the principals and staff at the schools and explore all that these schools have to offer, appears below. 
Hartford Public Magnet Schools are tuition-free to families, and transportation is made available, at no cost, to students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 in the Greater Hartford Region.
We encourage you and your child to visit these schools and consider how they would work for you and your family; we think you will like what you see and hear!
