Dear Parents and Guardians of Missisquoi Valley School District Students;
The purpose of this letter is to inform you about the MVSD Elementary School Choice Program. As of July 1, 2019, Franklin Northwest Supervisory Union became the unified Missisquoi Valley School District. As a single school district with four schools allows us some flexibility in where students can be enrolled.
The school board has determined that they will allow a limited number of students to transfer from one elementary school into another of the two participating elementary schools in our district, providing there is room. Once accepted, the student is able to attend the receiving school through the end of grade 6. It is important to note that, unless available, transportation is not provided.
If you are interested in having your child take part in the program, you will find an application and other information at mvsdschools.org Please complete and submit your application form by April 1, 2020. You may also call and request a copy from the superintendent’s office at the above address and phone number.
If more than the allowable number of students apply and there are limited openings, a lottery system will be used to determine the students who may transfer. Families will be notified by May 1, 2020.
Superintendent of Schools
