Per the FAQ each year CPS is going to provide a list of schools and grades that have open seats (I imagine there will be overlap between the voucher-eligible underperformers and the "open seats"). They are essentially trading off the few tuition paying Walnut/SCPA seats in an attempt to up the head count district wide and get more $$ from the state. So kids from St.Bernard, Norwood, Forest Park, etc. will fill the empty seats whatever CPS elementary offering is marginally better (or closer to mom's/dad's work) than what is offered in their home district.

However, if you live in Norwood (say) it doesn't mean that just because you went all the way to 6th grade in Silverton you will get a seat at Walnut (even if you pass the test,) because you are still out of district.
Hey what do you know a post that actually makes sense! As I have stated open enrollment is the new buzz word. In practicality I feel it makes very little difference. The freedom of going to the school of your choice is limited by so many factors, the cost/time of transportation being a major one.

From everything I read CPS is making good strides, for which the current administration is to be commended. But commend the pluses in the district as a whole, not the contrived magnet schools, alternate education Montessori, a German Language school?, etc. Move the district forward, but let's be realistic as to what are contrivances compared to the improvement of the average CPS student.

Contrived magnet school? You do realize they have been around since the 1960s and offer specialized courses in education? And they were also implemented as a means to remedy racial segregation. You really need to read up on topics you slander. The district could move so far forward that they use your yard for school bus parking and you would still just move the goal posts again.

Man those boundaries are insane... The land I am planning on is on Golden Ave. (off of Delta Ave) literally spitting distance from the imaginary line.
