Facilitating Applications and Enrollment
Once parents have received information about public school choice and SES, and have chosen to pursue either of these options for their children, they still need to request a transfer by submitting a public school choice application, or services by submitting an SES enrollment form to the district. Below are some ideas for districts to consider in ensuring that these processes are efficient and easy for parents to navigate. Some of the ideas that follow apply only with respect to enrollment in SES, and are designated accordingly.
