I want to be sure you are aware of some significant changes to interdistrict transfer options for the 2019-2020 school year. These changes will impact and eliminate Open Enrollment transfer requests.
Open Enrollment, enacted by the Oregon Legislature in 2011, created an additional enrollment option for students wishing to transfer between districts. The open enrollment statute contains a sunset provision, effective July 1, 2019.
What this means for districts and students:
There will be slots opened up in the Banks School District during the inter-district window, which will be in May. However, it is important to remember that students get the transfer approved by their resident district prior to submitting paperwork to Banks School District.
More to come as the Board of Directors will set Inter-District numbers during the April board meeting.

Parents and Students of Banks School District,
The District would like to announce that we are adding two student contact days at the end of the 2018-19 school year and have revised our calendar accordingly. This is a result of snow days and the District and Staff working together to add student contact time to the school year. The additional days will be on June 13-June 14, 2019. June 13th will be a full day and June 14th will be a half day. Previously, the last student day was June 12. Thank you for your attention to this.
