Bethlehem changes elementary open enrollment policy

New policy says students don't have to reapply annually.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Students won't have to reapply every year as part of Bethlehem Area School District's open enrollment policy, thanks to a change approved Monday night.

The board of directors approved a change in policy to its Elementary School Open Enrollment.

The policy allows students in elementary grades to apply to attend any of the district's 16 elementary schools.

In the past, students who were attending a district elementary school other than their assigned school would have to apply and be approved each year.

Under the new policy, students' approval for other district elementary schools will be effective through fifth grade.

In another change, the district will start accepting requests for open enrollment starting January 31, instead of the previous June 2 date.
