Enrollment Procedure Changes for Phillips:

* Instead of returning enrollment applications to our office, all applications will now be sent to our District’s Enrollment Office at 1301 2nd Avenue
* The change in the enrollment process for schools of choice will not affect currently enrolled children.
* If parents have already submitted an application to us and have currently enrolled a child at Phillips, that child’s younger sibling will have a placement in the new kindergarten class for 2014-15 and 2015-16.
* All students on the wait list will need to complete a within district application and submit it to the Enrollment Office by December 1, 2013.
* The enrollment process and application of the Diversity Plan will be consistent for all buildings.
* Whatever place a child currently holds on the 2014-15 and 2015-16 wait list will be the same place they will hold on the new list managed by the Enrollment Office.
* Beyond the 2015-16 school year, waiting lists will be complied only one year in advance.
* Families will need to submit an application to the Enrollment Office during the appropriate application period for the school year in which enrollment is being sought.
