Inter-District School Choice

The inter-district school choice program under G.L. c. 76, § 12B, allows parents/guardians to send their children to schools in communities other than the city or town in which they reside. Tuition is paid by the sending district to the receiving district. Districts may elect not to enroll school choice students if no space is available. Please refer to the Inter-District School Choice Receiving District Status document for information regarding district participation. If you are interested in having your child attend school in another district under this program and that district is accepting students, you should contact the superintendent's office in the district where you want to enroll your child. If your district does not participate in the inter-district school choice program, parents/guardians still have the option to enroll their child in a participating district.
