Wasatch County School District
School Choice Procedures
At Wasatch County School District, we believe that student learning relates directly to the environment in which a student receives instruction.
As Wasatch County continues to grow exponentially, it has become necessary for the District to examine School Choice procedures to ensure that we have room at each school to accommodate the students within that school’s boundaries. To that end, we are introducing a new School Choice policy, the result of which is to close open enrollment at the schools listed below to students who live outside the boundaries. Students who currently attend, but live outside the boundaries of, a closed school will be able to continue attending that school.
Within each school, a variance from the “Closed” status has been identified, which means a principal of a “Closed” school may take additional students just before start of school if there is space on grade with no additional staffing.
The District is currently in its Early Enrollment Period, which will end on March 15, 2019. Parents will be notified whether they’ve been accepted or denied by March 31, 2019. We are not accepting applications during the early enrollment process for non-boundary students to closed schools. Principals at each open school will accept School Choice applications for the 2019-20 school year through that date.
The Late Enrollment Period runs March 16 through July 31, 2019. The school will notify applicants whether or not students have been admitted on the variance between July 31 and Aug. 17, 2019.
The process for applying to attend a school outside of your student’s current boundaries through School Choice can be found by clicking here for students within Wasatch County School District, or here for students not within our district. Please open the documents using your internet browser (Google Chrome, Safari, etc.) to access a fillable form; the form can also be printed out and completed.
Capacity in the building (not counting portables) less rooms for Special Education.
Adjusted Capacity by State Rule is 90% of Capacity or Capacity - 40, whichever is larger.
Projected enrollment for next school year.
If Adjusted Capacity is greater than Projected Enrollment, then the school is OPEN, if not the school is CLOSED.
A principal of a CLOSED school MAY take additional students just before start of school IF there is space on grade with no additional staffing.
