Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice Collaborative
As in previous years, our school board has chosen to participate in the Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice Collaborative for 2018-19. 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 Agency of Education website,
Harwood Union will accept no more than 15 students for the 2018-2019 school year through the Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice.
