The Middleborough Public Schools accepts students under the School Choice Program. This program allows families to send their children to school in a community other than the city or town they reside in. Tuition is paid by the sending district to the receiving district. Transportation for school choice students is to be provided by the parent/guardian.
If you are interested in attending one of our schools, you must complete our School Choice application in full no later than June 6, 2019 in order to be part of the lottery process. A lottery will be held if the number of applications exceeds the number of available seats designated by vote of the Middleborough School Committee. If a lottery is needed, the lottery will be held at the Flora M. Clark Administration Building on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 1:00PM. If there are any remaining seats following this, then a second round lottery will take place on Monday, August 26, 2019 at 1:00PM.
Please know that in accordance with MGL c.71, s. 12B that “siblings of a student already enrolled in the receiving district shall receive priority for admission”.
To the full extent permitted by law, principals may consider a nonresident student's school disciplinary record in deciding whether to admit a school choice applicant. Each applicants’ discipline record must be submitted as part of their application. The discipline record may be submitted electronically through the online School Choice application or in hard copy at our Central Office located at 30 Forest Street. The online application and discipline record must be submitted in full no later than June 6, 2019 in order to be part of the lottery process.
Students that are accepted via the lottery process will be notified via the parent/guardian email given in the application. Within the approval email, detailed information will be given about the registration process. All registration requirements must be met in order to formally accept your school choice seat.
If your application is not drawn through the lottery process, your application will be kept on a waiting list should any seat become available and a second lottery will be held as mentioned above. Those not selected in the first lottery will also be notified via the email listed in the application for the parent/guardian.
