After submitting an Inquiry Form, Families interested in attending Willow Wind will meet with an administrative representative for an interview to determine if the program is a good placement for the student. Students will be evaluated for acceptance according to selection criteria, which includes a case management review. After being accepted into the program, students will be enrolled according to the following priorities:
Siblings of returning students
New Ashland School District residents
New students on inter-district transfers
If Willow Wind reaches full enrollment, a waiting list of eligible students will be established. Eligible students will be placed on the waiting list according to the priorities listed above. A lottery will be held for each area of priority on the waiting list before the close of the school year. After the initial registration of enrolled students, students on the waiting list may enroll in classes which are open and still have space available. Students who have been wait listed but participate in an open class will be eligible for full enrollment as space becomes available.
Verification of residency is required when enrolling a child in the Ashland School District. Verification of residency is also required when you change addresses within Ashland. Further, administration may require verification of residency at any time. Families must notify the school of any changes in student addresses within one week of the change.
Eligible students not living within the Ashland School District boundaries must apply for an inter-district transfer from their home district.
Families that are homeschooling their children may enroll part-time at Willow Wind Community Learning Center. In order to participate in this Ashland School District program, a homeschooled student:
Cannot be enrolled as a full-time public school student;
Must be registered as a homeschooler with the Southern Oregon Education Service District (ESD);
