Parents and Guardians of current fifth graders and students are invited to attend an Information Night at Marco Island Charter Middle School on Thursday, March 8 from 6:00 to 7:00. The program will begin the enrollment process for the 2012-13 school year and will include a description of the school’s academic and extracurricular programs, a tour of the campus and the application process. At the conclusion of the Information Night program, the 10-Day Open Enrollment period will start, during which individuals can obtain an application and the school will receive completed applications. The school’s current enrollment is the highest in its history, so space is limited. Should more applications be received than the seat capacity allows, a lottery will be used to determine which applications are accepted, as prescribed by Florida statute. The Open Enrollment period ends at 3:00 on March 22. If seats are still available after the Open Enrollment period closes, those seats will be filled on a first-come-first serve basis, again, as prescribed by Florida statute. To give a student the best chance to attend the school, it is important to meet the March 22 Open Enrollment deadline. For more information, please contact the school at 377-3200.
