Thanks to a vote by the Socorro ISD Board of Trustees, the region’s second-largest school district has opened their doors to students from around the Borderland.
The new open enrollment policy was approved by the SISD Board of Trustees at a special board meeting on June 4 and will take effect immediately so that students may begin enrolling for the 2019-2020 school year.
“In order to provide more students with endless opportunities for success, the Socorro Independent School District now will accept out-of-district transfer students in its schools,’ SISD officials shared via a news release.
With the vote, students who live outside of SISD boundaries now may enroll at SISD elementary, PK-8, middle, and high schools where space is available, among the district’s 49 schools.
“SISD welcomes parents and students from across El Paso County to find out why Team SISD is the right choice for endless opportunities! Students in the entire region can now experience the outstanding education provided in Team SISD, including free college classes available at every high school, free Pre-K for all four-year-olds, advanced academic academies, outstanding Career and Technical Education, championship athletics, award-winning fine arts, innovative WIN Academy, state-of-the-art technology, and world-class facilities,” district officials added.
