Open enrollment applications due soon

The open enrollment period for Oregon public schools is available March 1 through April 1, for the 2014-15 school year.

This includes:

• In-district transfer requests by parents who wish to send their child to a different school within the same school district.

• Out of district transfer requests, to send a child to a different school district. In this case, parents must contact the other district directly and follow its procedures.

District 509-J

Open enrollment applications are available at school offices and are due April 1.

For in-district transfers, current Jefferson County Middle School sixth and seventh grade students will have the choice of remaining at JCMS by filing an application before April 1, or attending the new Warm Springs K-8 Academy.

The 509-J District has enrollment caps for the number of students it can accept in each grade. Open enrollment is closed to students in 10-12th grades at Madras High School (enrollment cap is 225 students per grade level).

For the lower grades, open enrollment spots are open in kindergarten and first grade at Madras Primary; fifth grade at Buff Intermediate; fourth and fifth grades at Metolius Elementary; first grade and third through eighth grades at Warm Springs K-8; and sixth-eighth grades at JCMS.

If there are more requests than slots available, a lottery drawing will be held to determine students.
