• IX. SECONDARY SCHOOL OPEN ENROLLMENT -- BOARD POLICY 5111.2: Open Enrollment

    A. The Cherry Hill Board of Education recognizes the importance of providing the best possible education to all students at all schools. The Board also recognizes the importance of partnerships with the parents of our students. To those ends the Cherry Hill Board of Education supports open enrollment; therefore, open enrollment was instituted for the two high schools beginning with the 2000-2001 school year.

    B. Unless students apply to attend high school under open enrollment and are accepted, they will be assigned to East and West based on the boundary guidelines in Policy 5111.2.

    C. Beginning in the year 2000, unrestricted open enrollment will be available only to students entering in 9th grade and to any new student to the district.

    D. When students accept admittance under the Open Enrollment Policy, they are making a commitment for the complete number of grade levels at that school.

    E. Any request for a change of schools after a commitment to open enrollment must be made by application to the Board for a waiver of the Open Enrollment Policy. Students returning to their home school will return with all their grades and reports.

    F. Transportation will be provided for students based on district guidelines.

    G. There shall be no recruitment of students. Informational presentations shall be designed to attract students from all ability levels and from regular and special education classes.

    H. The open enrollment period for school year 2019-2020 shall end on the second Friday in March.
