2023-2024 School Choice

Annually, the Nashoba Regional School Committee must hold a public hearing and vote on whether the district will open seats within the school choice program which allows students from other districts to attend our district. The Nashoba Regional School Committee voted to close school choice in selected grades, while also allowing school choice to be open but limited in other grades. They based their decision on the data presented at the school committee meeting on April 12th as well as the School Choice Hearing on April 26th. You can view the memo presented to the committee as well as the presentation at the School Choice Hearing by reviewing the meeting materials of the school committee. In addition, you can view the video recording of those meetings to learn about the detail of discussion that was considered.
