For Your Information . . .
In February, 2000, the Board of Education approved the reorganization of the district's grade structure to K-4 elementary school and 5-8 middle schools beginning in September, 2002. Changes in the district's attendance areas made at that time include:
As of September, 2000, new families who begin residing in the Bayberry Apartments (Rivervale Court) and in Southwyck Condominiums (Cellar Ave., Carriage Lane, Burnham, Eastham, Harwich, Maddaket, Tisbury, Wareham, and Yarmouth) must register elementary grade students at Brunner School and middle school grade students at Park Middle School.
As of September, 2000, new families who begin residing on Hunter Ave. north of Front St. and south of Mountain Ave., Willow Ave. north of Front St. and south of Mountain Ave., and Myrtle Ave. north of Front St. and south of Mountain Ave. must register elementary grade students at Coles School and middle school grade students at Terrill Middle School.
The elementary and middle school attendance areas for students moving into new developments built after February, 2000, will be determined based on space availability in the schools. Developers/builders and real estate offices will be notified when a decision has been made regarding each development's school attendance area.
