Open enrollment applications for 2015-16 school year are now being accepted
* Applications must be received by Dec. 18, 2014
* Out-of-district students welcome to enroll in District 6
Greeley-Evans School District 6 offers students the opportunity to “open enroll” into schools outside of their neighborhood or home boundaries, and the district also welcomes out-of-district students into its schools. In both cases, families simply need to complete an Open Enrollment Application to begin the process.
The window for open enrollment requests for the 2015-16 school year will be from now through Dec. 18, 2014.
Open Enrollment Applications will be available in English and Spanish at every District 6 school office, at the district’s main office at 1025 9th Avenue, and at www.greeleyschools.org/openenrollment. Completed applications must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 18, 2014, at the district’s main office, at your child’s current school, or at the school you are requesting your child to attend.
While the district is able to accommodate a majority of open enrollment requests, a student who requests enrollment in schools (or specific grade-levels in a school) that are at or above capacity may be put on a waiting list.
Students who are currently attending a school under open enrollment or transfer will automatically be re-enrolled into the school for the 2015-16 school year, and those parents do not have to complete a new open enrollment application. If, however, a parent wishes to enroll a child back in their home school for the 2015-16 school year, parents should complete a Discontinuation of Open Enrollment / Transfer Application and return it to their current school by Dec. 18. 2014. These forms are also available in the locations listed above.
Open enrollment applicants will be notified in February of their application status. Parents of open enrollment students must provide transportation to and from their approved school.
For more information about open enrollment, please consult the District 6 website, www.greeleyschools.org/openenrollment, or call 348-6265.
Hygiene and warm clothing collected for students in need
Greeley-Evans School District 6 is collecting hygiene items and cold weather clothing to distribute to students in need in honor of November’s National Homeless and Runaway Youth Awareness month.
Greeley-Evans School District’s Families in Transition Program enrolls students in school, and provides resources and materials to academically support students in achieving their education. Over the last 5 school years, the Families in Transition Program has identified and assisted an average of 635 students per school year. Families and youth in our community may find themselves in transitional living situations due to a variety of circumstances.
Donations are now being accepted to support students identified in the Families in Transition Program in recognition of the awareness month. Hygiene items are used every day by most people, but a student living in a transitional living circumstance may not readily have those items.
Also, as the cold weather season begins, students are in need of warm clothing that will keep them warm as they walk to school, wait for their school bus, and play outside for recess.
Items being requested are:
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Items may be placed in the donation box on the first floor of the District 6 Administration Building, 1025 9th Avenue. The office is open 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. The donation box will be available throughout the month of November, but donations of these items are always appreciated year round in the Welcome Center of the district’s Administration Building.
