Do you know what Open Enrollment is? Open enrollment allows Utah students to attend any public school in the state where space is available. You may have heard it being referred to as getting a "Special Permit."
If you've been thinking of moving your child to a different school, a good way to determine if it's a good fit is to simply visit the school. You can make an appointment with the principal or counselor and ask the questions you need to. In some cases, you may be allowed to observe a class there as well. We will post what to look for in an effective classroom at a later date.
Early Open Enrollment begins Dec. 1st and ends the 3rd Friday in February. Some districts charge a one-time $5 processing fee when you apply. It is good to apply early as it is based on space availability.
The directors of PEERS love sharing anything that will help parents more easily be involved in their child's education and feel successful as a parent of a school aged child. We have all felt the struggle and found successes along the way that we want to share with you!
