Tomorror River Taking Applications for Charter School
For the City-Times
The Tomorrow River Community Charter School (TRCCS) is now accepting applications for the 2013/2014 school year. The TRCCS wishes to develop the
whole child through nature, art, movement, language and music in an innovative, collaborative, and supportive educational environment based on inspiration from Waldorf and other proven pedagogy.
The school will be located at the Central Wisconsin Environmental Station (CWES). The Charter Contract with the SchoolDistrict of the Tomorrow River has been through the initial approval process, and everyone is looking forward to that document being signed and adopted by both parties in the near future. While many specifics regarding facilities and programming are under development, school organizers are confident that TRCCS is on track to open this fall.
Consequently, TRCCS is taking applications for students in Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade. The applications received will determine class sizes and number. If the number of applicants is greater than the school’s physical capacity, TRCCS will fill the younger grades first, not offering classes for the older grades. The school’s goal is to grow one classroom per year. If TRCCS receives more applications than class size permits, there will be a lottery after the application deadline, which is April 30th.
To learn more about the lottery process, please visit the TRCCS website at ww.tomorrowrivercommunityschool.org. Families who reside outside of the Tomorrow River School District will have to go through the DPI open enrollment process. The application for open enrollment can also be found on the website. If there are any questions, please contact the TRCCS by phone 715-824-5521, ext. 224 or email email@example.com.
The TRCCS organizers are more than thrilled with their progress and are looking forward to opening the doors to this new and innovative charter school this
fall. They are looking forward to having families become part of the TRCCS community. With family and community support and dedication to an alternative
education for the children of central Wisconsin, the dream of four mothers is becoming a reality for many.
