OPEN ENROLLMENT INFORMATION FOR WASATCH JUNIOR HIGH
The months of December, January, and February have been legislated for parents to exercise their school choice option for the Early Enrollment Period Transfer for the forthcoming school year (2017/2018).
If you wish for your student(s) to attend a school other than the school in your home boundary, you are required to complete a USOE Standard Open Enrollment Application (Early Enrollment Period Transfer) and submit it to the school of your choice between the time period beginning Thursday, December 1, 2016, and ending on Thursday, February 16, 2017.
This is the best time to request a transfer to a non-resident school for the forthcoming school year. The forms are available in the requested school’s office from December 1, 2016, through the third Friday in February.
Students residing within Granite School District are given priority. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis and will be stamped with the date and time received. Each application is individually screened and considered based on available space in the requested grade, class, or program.
The requested school has until Friday, March 17, 2017 or within six weeks after receipt of the application (whichever is later) to notify the parent/family of acceptance.
If your student(s) are accepted on the USOE Standard Early Open Enrollment Application, it is not required that you reapply the following school year—as long as space is available, and the student(s) remain in the requested school. As in the past, when a student moves from elementary school to junior high, or from junior high to high school, there is no automatic feeder system–students on permits in the 6th and 9th grades, who wish to attend a school outside of their home school boundary, must reapply on the USOE Standard Open Enrollment Application (during the Early Enrollment Transfer Period) to request the preferred school.
Items needed are:
1-Open enrollment application completed (forms are at the school you are requesting)
Please write your email address on the top or bottom of the form. thanks
2-copy of your student’s last report card
3-copy of immunizations if you are not in the Granite District
4-there is a one-time, non- refundable $5.00 processing fee payable to the requested school
Wasatch Jr. High office hours are 7:30 – 4:00
We will have a table set up with information on testing, immunizations for 7th graders, and our open house coming up in January.
