THE CHOICE CORNER – What Parents Should Know!

Choice Corner 8

School has just started, but the Future is coming soon! 
The Regional School Choice Office (RSCO) Lottery for Magnet School and Open Choice seats for the 2014 – 2015 School Year will take place from November 15, 2013 through February 28, 2014.
The Hartford District Choice Lottery for Hartford District Schools for the 2014 – 2015 School Year will also take place from November 15, 2013 through February 28, 2014. 
Please note:  If you are a Hartford resident and the parent of a transitional student (defined as a student entering Kindergarten or in the last grade of his/her current school) you must apply for the Hartford District Choice Lottery whether or not you apply for the RSCO Lottery.  This will ensure that you obtain a placement in one of your top four District school choices, whether or not you apply for, or get placed in a Magnet School or the Open Choice program.
We recently asked some of our Principals and Theme Coaches what they liked best about Hartford Public Schools, and they said:
“…I was brought up within the Hartford Public Schools System and I am a living success of our schools”
-Tyrone Richardson, Site Principal at STEM at Dwight School
“…the amount of students who view our schools as an extension of their family”
-Jennifer Smagin, Magnet Theme Coach at Classical Magnet School
“…simply put, our students!”
Tori Niles-Outlier, Principal at Great Path Academy
“…the trajectory that has occurred over twenty-one years; we are truly a Rising Star.”
            John Freeman, Principal at Montessori Magnet at Annie Fisher
