~ LOTTERY NOTIFICATION ~
As in previous years, the WCUUSD School Board has chosen to participate in the Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice Collaborative for 2020-2021. Through this program and the state school choice program, students may apply to go to any public high school in Vermont at no cost. The Vermont Legislature passed a law in May 2012 (Act 129, Sec. 34.§ 822d 2A) which allows high school students to apply through school choice to any public high school in Vermont. This law sets rules for school districts regarding the number of entering and exiting student slots allowed through school choice. Students are chosen by lottery from all the applicants for each school district based on the number of open slots. You may view school choice information at the Vermont Department of Education website: https://legislature.vermont.gov/statutes/section/16/021/00822a
If your high school student is interested in attending a public high school other than U-32 next year, please contact U-32 Student Services to obtain a school choice application form by calling 802-229-0322 or emailing email@example.com. Completed applications must be received in Student Services by Friday, February 28, 2020. You will be informed of the outcome of the lottery by April 1, 2020. You will need to confirm whether your student will accept or decline the placement by April 15, 2020. If you do not confirm placement by this date, your slot may be given to another student if the school has a waiting list.
-- Parents are responsible for providing theirstudent’s transportation if they are chosen. --

~ U-32 FEATURED IN AGENCY OF EDUCATION VIDEO ~
Last year, u-32 was evaluated by a team of teachers, administrators, students and members of the Agency of Education to see how well we were meeting the educational goals of the state. From this evaluation, U-32 was chosen as a school with a "promising practice." Our Teacher Advisory, TA, system and our overall school culture was chosen as an example to be shared with others. A video was produced to show what we do here at U-32. It really showcases what is great about U-32.
