SCHOOL CHOICE

The School Committee recognizes the provisions of General Laws Chapter 76, Section 12B, as amended, which provides every student in the Commonwealth a fair and equal opportunity to attend a public school in a community other than that of the student's residence. Annually, participation in the School Choice program will be voted upon by the School Committee prior to June 1st. If the School Committee votes to adopt School Choice, the Superintendent will develop a procedure for implementation.

If the School Committee votes to adopt School Choice it further directs the Superintendent to accept only as many nonresident students as can be accommodated without requiring additional course sections.
