Visit Open Enrollment schools

Posted January 30th, 2015 by Terri McHugh

School District 54 invited parents to its Open Enrollment Fair on Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015. The fair provided parents with information on eight schools in our district:  Blackwell, Campanelli, Dooley, Enders-Salk, Hanover Highlands, Lincoln Prairie, Link and MacArthur. Each of these schools houses a unique program and we anticipate a few openings at each site next year.

If you missed the fair, or even if you attended, you are still invited to visit the schools and view the programs in action. People interested in visiting a school and picking up an application can call each school for more information. The application deadline is Feb. 27 for all schools.
