Mid-Missouri schools discuss open enrollment

Mid-Missouri schools discuss open enrollment

Plan could come up again in Missouri legislature

November 15th, 2010 in News

While the coming legislative session still is nearly two months away, several Mid-Missouri school officials already are bracing for the possibility of lawmakers again discussing open enrollments.

Open enrollment is the idea that a student living in one district could attend a school in a different district, without needing to pay out-of-district tuition, as current law requires.

In 2010, both the House and Senate received bills that would have allowed some form of open enrollment, but none made it out of one house and to the other.
