PISD now accepting limited open enrollment applications for non-residents

Pasadena ISD will begin accepting enrollment applications for students who reside outside the boundaries of the school district on a tuition free and limited basis through the district’s first-ever Limited Open Enrollment (LOE) program.

LOE gives students in neighboring communities a chance to benefit from the various educational programs offered in the district.

“We have many innovative educational opportunities that assist all students in being successful,” Dr. DeeAnn Powell, PISD superintendent said. “We are excited to provide this opportunity for children who reside outside our attendance boundaries and are interested in our outstanding instruction, innovative programs and caring teachers.”

Applications are based on a first-come, first-serve basis for students in grades pre-kindergarten through 12.

The forms are available on the district’s website (www1.pasadenaisdorg) and at the PISD Administration Building, located at 1515 Cherrybrook Lane, Pasadena, TX 77502. The Administration Building is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Parents must submit the application, along with all required documents for consideration. These include:

·         A copy of the student’s final report card

·         Attendance report

·         Conduct and discipline report

·         If a student received Special Education services at their previous school, then the most recent ARD document is also required.

Each application will be evaluated by a panel of administrators, followed by a final review by the campus principal to determine acceptance into the LOE program. All applicants will receive a letter of notification regarding their child’s acceptance status. Students who have been accepted will be able to attend a PISD school for the 2017-18 school year.

Schools that have reached maximum capacity for the 2017-18 school year may not be accepting students through the LOE; including: Dobie High School, Bondy and Thompson Intermediate.
