  1. Enrollment and Lottery Policy-Revisions
    1. It is proposed that we do not pull 9th grade students for second semester unless they are a child of an employee or founder, or if they are transferring with their younger siblings. 
    2. Since 9th grade is our final year, any benefit to the student to transfer for 1 semester is negligible.
  2. Fee and Fee Waiver Policy - State required updates
  3. Early Childhood Center Fees - new policy
  4. Early Childhood DWS Subsidy Waiver - new Template
    1. Applying for DWS subsidies has been difficult and tedious. We used the DWS eligibility chart to create a waiver that employees can use in lieu of DWS subsidy denial.
