  • Would students be allowed to open enroll to other schools in the district?

    Posted by:

    Based on overcapacity at Liberty Middle School and Sheyenne High School, the number of in-district transfers that will be approved is minimal. An extenuating circumstance that will be considered is when siblings would be in two separate high schools at the same time. The oldest student in the family still in school must currently be a member of the graduating classes of 2021-2023 at Sheyenne HS in order for any younger siblings to be eligible for this clause. This clause will apply to all siblings in the system regardless of current grade level. Based on scheduling, staffing, and programming, these requests will only be reviewed on an annual basis. 

    For the immediate future, we will grant one-way transfers within the district for students requesting to attend Heritage Middle School and Horace High School instead of their home school based on program availability and administrative approval.

  • Will the lower enrollment impact our ability to offer courses to those students at Horace HS?

    Posted by:

    Horace High School will offer the same core course selections as our existing two high schools. Course offerings at each high school are based on student interest determined during pre-registration. 
     
    Elective offerings at our high schools do differ based on program design. All three high schools will offer their own unique specialty courses in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways.  
     
    Students can and do take courses based on their interest and passion at neighboring high schools through the CTE Consortium. Transportation is provided for students taking elective classes within our district but at a school other than their home school.

  • Could students travel or receive instruction through an interactive classroom experience?

    Posted by:

    Yes; this happens now between the two high schools when courses are not offered due to enrollment.

  • Does Heritage MS have the necessary spaces/resources to support Horace freshmen?

    Posted by:

    We plan to provide a ninth-grade academy model at Heritage Middle School to ensure our freshmen students have their own designated space while there in 2020-21.
