School Board News
Open Enrollment Deadline is February 1st
By state law, the deadline to submit open enrollment applications is February 1st. This deadline applies to both new open enrollment applications as well as students who wish to continue to open enroll at a different school. By next week, we will also send individual reminders to families who need to reapply to continue their open enrollment status. Applications may be submitted by going to: d93.org/3010F.
The following schools are designated as magnet schools that offer special instruction and programs not available in other schools in the district. Students who wish to attend a magnet school need to submit an open enrollment application to transfer to the school. Students currently enrolled in these schools do not need to submit an open enrollment form to continue their enrollment at the school.
Praxium Mastery Academy
Praxium is excited for its third year as a mastery-based, in-person middle school in District #93. We wanted to reach out to you and let you know about this middle school option for Bonneville School District 7th and 8th graders for the 2023-24 school year. In January, we will have the opportunity to visit current 6th grade classrooms throughout the district and explain this middle school and learning model, but we wanted to reach out to all parents and let you know about this opportunity for your child. Open Enrollment for the district for next year is now open and will end on February 1st.
Praxium Mastery Academy personalizes learning and support for each student, allowing students to learn at their own pace, regardless of the time needed. We use teacher-led workshops, mentoring, small group instruction, and projects to create learning opportunities for students. Praxium teachers organize a wide variety of learning experiences that focus on developing knowledge, skills AND habits of success. We work hard to help every Praxium student be prepared for high school and beyond..
Please review the following flyer and FAQ information to learn more about our program.
Open Enrollment Policy Changes
Why does the District allow open enrollment?
The School Board establishes school attendance zones to ensure efficient and balanced use of District facilities. However, Idaho Code 33-1402 provides students from both inside and outside of the school district with the opportunity to apply to enroll in any school in the district. There are compelling reasons why students may need to open enroll in a different school. Because overcrowding has such an adverse impact in school, our principals carefully consider each new open enrollment application before approving it.
