THE CHOICE CORNER – What Parents Should Know!
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
