Thank you to the hundreds of hopeful families who submitted Open Enrollment Applications for the 2019/2020 school year. Our award-winning teachers and staff are honored to provide high quality education to more than 11,000 students and are working diligently to find opportunities to welcome as many new and returning students as possible. We embrace the opportunity to partner with families who want to be part of our “A” rated district, and together we can help children achieve success at school and in life.
The Litchfield Elementary School District Governing Board recently voted to lower class sizes in Kindergarten – 2nd grade by two students, lower 3rd – 5th grade class sizes by one student and lower 6th - 8th grade class sizes by two students. We anticipate lower class sizes will enhance classroom experiences for teachers and students. However, the planning required to prepare for this change is significant. We are currently constructing school facilities, hiring teachers/support staff and modifying class schedules.
We appreciate your understanding and support as we work to achieve a sustainable balance of several competing factors. The first round of Open Enrollment Notifications will be sent in late April, and the notification process will run through the end of July. Families who submitted Open Enrollment Applications by March 15, 2019 and who have not received notification by June 1, 2019 are encouraged to call 623-535-6000. Applications received after March 15, 2019 may not be processed until after June 1, 2019.
Thank you for your patience. We are eager to complete this process and begin helping families prepare for the upcoming school year!
