Open Choice Program Placement Announcement

RSCO has notified families that applied to a school choice program in the Greater Hartford Region by email and/or text messages of Open Choice Program placement offers. The next step for families that received this notification is to log into their online application and view their placement letter which provides the name of the school/program, the response deadline, and other important information.  We understand this is an important decision, please make use of the resources and information available to find out even more about your awesome opportunity.
