Learning by Choice: An Act Relating to Student Enrollment Options in Washington State.
Billings, Judith A.
In March 1990, the Washington State Legislature adopted the Learning by Choice Law, a law relating to student enrollment options. The law consists of three major components: Family Choice; Running Start; and Seventh and Eighth Grade Choice. The Family Choice law allows parents to select which public school(s) their children will attend, within certain limitations. The Running Start program permits 11th- and 12th-grade students to enroll in courses or programs in a community college or technical college without paying college tuition. Under the Seventh and Eighth Grade Choice program, a seventh- or eighth-grade student may receive credits for completing high school courses. This booklet answers the most commonly asked questions about the law. The final section contains related chapters of the law. (LMI)
