West Bridgewater

School Choice deadline soon

Continue reading below

West Bridgewater’s public schools are again accepting applications for the state School Choice program, with a deadline of Feb. 28 at 4 p.m. Superintendent Patricia Oakley said the district has been participating in the program for 10 years, and 27 students from outside this district are attending West Bridgewater schools this year. Oakley said the district will not know how many slots if can offer for next school year until projected enrollment figures come in around March 1. With the state reimbursing districts at the rate of $5,000 per student, School Choice can be a significant source of revenue, especially for smaller districts, and districts that participate are not required to provide transportation for out-of-district students. If the number of students applying exceeds the numbers of slots available, students are chosen by lottery.
