Watervliet Schools Announces Fall 2021 School of Choice Openings


Watervliet Public Schools announces that the district will accept applications from non-resident students for the Fall Semester of the 2021-2020 school year beginning June 1st, 2021. The application period will remain open until June 15th, 2021.


Currently enrolled School of Choice students who will return to WPS in the fall DO NOT need to re-apply.


To be eligible for Schools of Choice, applicants must be a resident of a district within an intermediate school district contiguous to the boundaries of the educating district’s intermediate school district. Transportation will not be provided for non-resident students. The non-resident applicant’s district of residence will be asked to provide information for evaluating the student’s application. Watervliet Public Schools may refuse to enroll a non-resident applicant who has been expelled and/or suspended within the preceding two years from school or has a poor attendance record at their resident district.


If the number of qualified non-resident applicants exceeds the enrollment allotments available, the district will use a random draw system that complies with State & Federal anti-discrimination laws. Applications not accepted by the random draw will be placed on a waiting list.
