In 1966, Project Concern (now called the Hartford Region Open Choice Program) was developed and managed by the Hartford Board of Education. In 1997 it became part of the Open Choice program funded by the state of Connecticut. The statewide program was created as part of the Sheff v. O'Neill Agreement. Participation in the Open Choice program is voluntary.                                                                                                                           

 

   

 

 

The goals of the Hartford Region Open Choice Program are to:

  • improve academic achievement; to reduce racial, ethnic and economic isolation
  • provide all children with a choice of high quality educational programs. 

West Hartford Public Schools is proud to be one of the original participants in the Project Concern/Hartford Region Open Choice Program, welcoming Hartford students since 1966.

How to Enroll in the Open Choice Program

Families must complete and submit an application which is available through the Regional School Choice Office (RSCO). The Open Choice program is available to children entering grades K-12 who are currently enrolled in public schools. However, West Hartford Public Schools may not have seats available in all grades at all times. Open Choice applicants are placed into schools through the RSCO lottery. Eligible students with a sibling enrolled in the program are given preference in the lottery for the town in which their sibling attends school. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by CREC's Open Choice office.  A welcome letter from the assigned West Hartford school will follow.  
 

Once accepted into the Open Choice program, your child can remain in the program until s/he graduates from high school. However, if you are a Hartford resident and you move out of Hartford, your child will no longer be eligible to participate in the program.
