Magnet School Parent Choice Program

Recent legislation passed by the Connecticut General Assembly (Sec. 42, P.A. 07-3) provides the possibility for Interdistrict Magnet School operators that have unused seats to enroll interested students directly into their program.  Preference is given to a student from a district that is not already participating in the Interdistrict Magnet School.  Area Cooperative Educational Servies (ACES) is accepting applications for a lottery for availabe seats in two of our magnet schools.  They are: Thomas Edison Middle School (grade 6-8) in Meriden, and Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School (grades K-8) in Hamden.  Applications will be availabe March 1, 2018.
