Oak Park schools are beginning to experience a leveling of enrollment due to the fact the area is ‘built out.’ This has created a unique opportunity for a limited number of students to attend our schools who do not live in Oak Park. We have been designated a ‘District of Choice,’ which allows us to accept a limited number of students from out of the attendance area. Additionally, under new legislation, we are now able to accept students on inter-district permits and automatically renew them annually until the student graduates from high school even if the student begins to attend our schools in Kindergarten.
OAK PARK SCHOOLS ARE RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR EXCELLENCE!!!
Grades Discovery K - 5
PLEASE READ ALL INFO VERY CAREFULLY
The list of new Discovery K - 5 students and their school assignments is above. Students are listed alphabetically by last name. Emails have gone out to all families of the students listed to advise of their school assignments. If you did not receive an email, please check your SPAM account. VERY IMPORTANT information was included in that email in regards to orientation, etc. If you have not received an email and your child is newly enrolled for this fall, please contact Linda Gam immediately for the necessary information.
If you have made other arrangements for your student for this fall, please email Linda Gam with your plans.
