REDMOND, Ore. - The Redmond School District Board of Directors has voted to be a receiving district during open enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year.
The district has chosen to participate in open enrollment since the enactment of Oregon House Bill 3681 in 2012.
The law allows students to transfer to school districts outside of their legal residence if a student receives written consent from the receiving district.
Students already enrolled at RSD may also request to transfer to a different school than their assigned neighborhood school. The open enrollment period for grades K-12 is March 1 through April 1.
"Students should have the opportunity to choose among quality schools," said Mike McIntosh, Superintendent. "Redmond School District offers families the ability to tailor their academic needs through open enrollment."
Students who are interested in learning more about their school may attend any of the following information/orientation nights:
· Ridgeview High School – Wednesday, March 5 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
· Redmond High School – Thursday, March 6 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
· Elton Gregory Middle School – Thursday, May 29 at 6:00 p.m.
· Obsidian Middle School – Thursday, May 29 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Students interested in transferring to RSD should contact and notify their home district first. Transfer forms and other information are available online at www.redmond.k12.or.us.
