SCHOOL CHOICE INFORMATION FOR 2019-2020
Uxbridge Public Schools will be collecting school choice applications from now through the start of the school year. There will be two approval dates for school choice students prior to the beginning of the school year. The two approval dates are:
June 12, 2019
August 26, 2019
The deadline for applications for those approval dates are:
June 11, 2019 3:30 PM
August 23, 2019 3:30 PM
On May 1, 2019 the Uxbridge School Committee voted to continue with the School Choice program and to allow the following number of school choice seats to be open for the 2019-2020 school year:
Kindergarten through Grade 7: Seats available = 5 seats per grade level
Grade 8 through Grade 12: Seats available = 10 seats per grade level
Should there be more student applications than school choice seats available, a random drawing will be held on the approval dates. School choice applications will be accepted and processed on a first come, first served basis after August 26th until September 30th. Only current Uxbridge students moving during the school-year will be eligible to remain through school choice given that seats are available.
What is School Choice?
The School Choice Program allows students from Massachusetts' towns other than Uxbridge to attend the Uxbridge Public Schools. The School Choice Program is only available for non-residents, as determined by the Department of Education. Transportation to Uxbridge will be the responsibility of the parent. The number of students admitted will be based on space availability.
