South Windsor Public Schools is proud to participate in the Hartford Region Open Choice Program. The Open Choice Program offers public school students in Hartford the opportunity to attend public schools in suburban towns, at no cost to the student's family. Participation in the Open Choice program is voluntary.
Students must complete and submit an application which is available through the Regional School Choice Office (RSCO). The program is open to children who will begin kindergarten in school year 2014-2015 (age 5 by December 31st of the school year), and children entering grades 1 – 12 who are currently enrolled in public schools. However, South Windsor Public Schools may not have seats available in all grades at all times.
Open Choice applicants are placed into schools through the RSCO lottery. Eligible students with a sibling enrolled in the program are given preference in the lottery for the town in which their sibling attends school. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by the Choice office.
Once accepted into the Open Choice program, your child can remain in the program until s/he graduates from high school. However, if you are a Hartford resident and you move out of Hartford, your child will no longer be eligible to participate in the program.
