The 1998-99 Wisconsin Full-Time Inter-District Public School Open Enrollment Program: A Report to the Governor and the Legislature.
Cleaver, Mary Jo
This report provides a description of open-enrollment programs, including tables showing the number of applications and transfers by grade, by race, and by special education status. In addition, the report provides summary information, such as the number of school districts in which more than 3 percent of the students transferred out, the number in which more students transferred into the district than out of the district, and vice versa. The report also provides information about appeals of school district denials of open-enrollment applications, including reasons for denial, outcomes of the appeals, and the most common reasons that school-board decisions were overturned. The report includes information about the number of low-income parents who received transportation reimbursement, including the total amount of transportation reimbursement paid, the average reimbursement per student, and the average number of miles students were transported. Seven appendices provide much of the above data on an individual school district basis. (DFR)
