Non-resident enrollment closedFor years, the District has worked closely with former state demographer Hazel Reinhardt to monitor enrollment trends. Today, Mounds View’s enrollment history is showing a clear trend of continuous increases.
As a result of this trend and the future outlook for building capacities, the School Board approved the District administration’s recommendation to close new open enrollment options throughout Mounds View Public Schools through the 2019-20 school year. The Board had previously closed new open enrollment through 2018-2019.
Siblings of students currently attending a District school will continue to be approved to attend. Families with siblings must still apply during the regular open enrollment time period. As with open enrollment, new in-district transfer options will also be closed through the 2019-20 school year, with the exception of siblings of students currently attending a school outside of their attendance area, families with verifiable daycare in the requested school area or students with a documented and compelling educational need.
UpdatesThe Board discussed issues and updates related to Northeast Metro 916 and AMSD.
