District 54 Virtual Open Enrollment Fair scheduled for January 26, 2022
A goal of the School District 54 Board of Education is to provide options for parents in the selection of their child's school. In addition to the neighborhood school, School District 54 has developed programs at several district schools, which it can now offer as choices.
District 54 invites parents to its Virtual Open Enrollment Fair at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022, via Zoom (tinyurl.com/69ftwuc7).
The fair will provide parents with information on seven elementary schools in the district. Each school houses a unique program and School District 54 anticipates a few openings at each site next year. If you cannot attend the live webinar, a recording will be posted to sd54.org/openenrollment following the presentation.
You do not need to attend the virtual fair to apply as all student applications received by March 4 will be placed in a lottery. Students must be registered before they will be accepted.
Kindergarten registration begins Feb. 2, 2022. Schools will send letters to all applicants by March 18; the letter will state whether the student has been accepted into the Open Enrollment program or has been put on a waitlist.
People interested in learning more about each school's program can attend virtual visits via Zoom. Dates and times will be posted online at sd54.org/openenrollment.
For school specific questions, please visit the school's website or call the school directly.
