Late applications will not be accepted for any reason.”

Really no late applications will be accepted for any reason?   Really?    You would think from the way this is written that the E.S.D. has control over the law.

It would not be the first time the E.S.D. has broken the law.   It is very much a district of ‘ do as I say , not as I do.”

The fact is families  can open enroll at any time through the school year , for any reason.    So the comment that late application will not be accepted is total crap.

Families are no longer stuck in the Evansville School District.  It is a very dysfunctional district and lacks any real curriculum , and the fail to get kids ready for college.

( Some kids are just naturally gifted and have been college ready because of their own discipline, not because of any thing they might catch at the high school.Oh hell some of them are smarter than the teachers.)

I was looking over reports on the school website,  100+ kids open enrolled out this last year.  That does not include the families  who home school which is over 50+ families in the district who home school.  That does not also include the families who intentionally moved so their kids could go to a better school and get a decent education.   The numbers grow every year and will continue to grow until real changes are made.

And sorry folks real change is not 4k.   Only 9% of the people surveyed left Evansville because of no 4k.  That is a very small amount.

How ever  36% of those surveyed left because of lack of curriculum/challenging curriculum at the higher grades.

Take advantage of Open enrollment,  bigger schools offer so much more.    We did not realize how bad the Evansville school district was until we moved and saw how real schools run and what they offer.

  1. I tried to diplomatically point out to the administration that this was an inflammatory statement that was simply false, and was directed to see how the DPI used the same statement buried in their open enrollment documents. They just don’t get it.

    It is exactly the ‘attitude’ you saw from them regarding this , is why a lot of people have left the E.S.D. They think every thing has to be a fight. They seem to want to battle the parents of Evansville. They are wrong. They are attempting to manipulate open enrollment. All one has to do is call the D.P.I. and the they will be told, Evansville is wrong. Fortunately most people know that open enrollment is year round now. All one has to do is do a search on open enrollment in Wisconsin and it brings several articles on year round open enrollment. When in doubt call the D.P.I. because you seldom get a honest answer from administration, they attempt to twist things to fit their agenda. I say twist, but the best description would be lie. I thank you Melissa for attempting to point this out to them.
