Dayton opts out of open enrollment
Open enrollment allows students to transfer in or out of the district without having to petition for approval or offer justification. The district offered open enrollment this year, but few students took advantage.
Next year, students desiring to pursue opportunities outside their home district will have to apply for an interdistrict transfer, requiring approval from both the outgoing and incoming districts.
In other business, the board:
* Decided Dayton would retain its affiliation with the Willamette Education Service District. Dayton relies on the ESD for special education, purchasing and finance programs.
* Made a minor revision to the current year calendar, moving a conference day from April 5 to April 26.
* Voted to extend the contract of Superintendent Janelle Beers through 2016.
