COMMENT; My daughter is enrolled in Scotia Glenville High School and is in 11th grade. I just moved to Schenectady but want to keep her in Scotia-Glenville schools. Please let me know if this is okay. We will be driving her daily to the bus stop. It’s very important that she doesn’t go to Schenectady High School as she has a learning disability and she’s enrolled in special ed classes in this comfortable with Scotia-Glenville. She also has a speech disability which would impair her for a major adjustment such as switching schools. Thank you, please get back with me.
RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. In general, you have to live here in order for your child to attend school here. The only waivers that are typically given are ones involving students in their final months of their senior year. Our suggestion is that you contact Kenn Handin, director of pupil personnel services (which oversees the school district’s special education program) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 347-3600 ext. 74100. He may be able to offer you some advice.
You could also appeal directly to Superintendent Susan Swartz, email@example.com or 347-3600 ext. 71100. You would need to write a letter to Susan Swartz, Superintendent, at Scotia-Glenville Schools, 900 Preddice Parkway, Scotia, NY 12302. You would also have the option of paying tuition to keep your daughter here.
