Demystifying public school enrollment goal of two employee sessions
Have a student about to start school next fall? Looking ahead to middle or high school enrollment? Confused about clusters and magnets, traditional and optional programs?
Human Resources and the Work-Life Balance committee of Great Places to Work are offering two sessions to help parents who work at the University of Louisville get the information they need to understand the Jefferson County Public School registration process.
“Choosing a school is a major decision for caregivers. As UofL employees, we all place a high value on education, but for longtime Louisvillians as well as those new to this area, the options and processes for enrolling our kids in local schools can be overwhelming. This series is intended to provide guidance and support for families,” said Rachel Howard, Work-Life Balance committee chair.
Human Resources will host “JCPS Application Process—explained” from 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m. Oct 1, in Room 103A, Human Resources, 1980 Arthur St.
Jonathan Lowe, direct of student assignment for Jefferson County Public Schools, will present information on the application process for JCPS elementary, middle and high school students. Registration for this free session is online.
The Work-Life Balance committee will follow that session with a brown bag lunch on the topic of school registration at noon, Thursday, Oct. 10, also in Room 103A, Human Resources. The goal of the lunch is to bring together parents who’ve gone through registration at JCPS and other districts and parents who are about to go through the process. Parents who’ve been through the registration process before will be asked to talk about their personal experiences and to answer questions from those about to register their children for school. RSVP online.
