School Choice - Lottery

As in previous years, our school board has chosen to participate in the Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice Collaborative for 2015-2016.  Through this program and the state school choice program, students may apply to go to any public high school in Vermont at no cost. The Vermont Legislature passed a law in May 2012 (Act 129, Sec. 34. § 822d 2A) which allows high school students to apply through school choice to any public high school in Vermont.  This law sets rules for school districts regarding the number of entering and exiting student slots allowed through school choice.  Students are chosen by lottery from all the applicants for each school district based on the number of open slots. You may view school choice information at the Vermont Department of Education website: http://education.vermont.gov/new/html/laws/act129.html 

If your high school student is interested in attending a public high school other than U-32 next year, please contact the U-32 Guidance Dept. to obtain a school choice application form at 802-229-0322 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Completed applications must be received in the U-32 Guidance Dept. by Wednesday, February 25, 2015. You will be informed of the outcome of the lottery by April 1, 2015.  *Parents are responsible for providing their student’s transportation if they are chosen.*

Turn Off Texting

text

Turn Off Texting Presenter Bill Merrylees rides with U-32 student Nate Lavigne September 24th. Turn Off Texting (presented by The Youth Safety Council of Vermont) is an eye-opening educational program that travels to schools throughout the state, creating first-hand experiences of the dangers of texting while driving. Students navigate a golf cart through a course of traffic cones, then drive the course a second time while texting. Their errors – the cones that they run into while texting (pedestrians! parked cars! puppies!) make the dangers of texting and driving plain to understand. For more see the current issue of Bus Stop Conversations.
