School City of Whiting Community Forum

The Board of School Trustees of the School City of Whiting will host a community forum on Monday, January 19, 2009, at 6:00 pm in the Whiting High School Auditorium. The topic of discussion is “Open Enrollment.” The school board is considering allowing students residing outside of the district boundaries to attend the Whiting Public Schools starting with the 2009-2010 school year. A change in state law no longer allows school districts the ability to charge tuition to non-resident students. School districts can choose to close their enrollment to non-residents or open the enrollment and allow non-residents to attend. Whiting residents are encouraged to attend the public meeting on Monday, January 19, 2009 to share their opinion on this issue.
