Options Program application period begins Oct. 26

Application period for Options Programs closes at 4 p.m. Jan. 5.

It's time to start figuring out whether your kids will go to one of the Beaverton School District's Option Programs.

The application period for these interest-focused programs begins Oct. 26 and will close at 4 p.m. Jan. 5.

Most of these programs start in sixth grade, although the School of Science & Technology is for high-schoolers only.

All applicants must live within district boundaries. For current students, applications may be completed online or on paper using student identification. Eligible students not currently attending a district school must complete a paper application.

Summa programs are not consider Options but applications for these academically challenging programs are due during the same time frame. Students who may qualify for Summa based on test scores are notified by mail.

Qualified students may apply for both an Option program and Summa.

These programs will host open houses this fall so prospective students and their parents can learn more.

For more information, including open house schedules and applications, search for "learning options programs" on the Beaverton School District website or call 503-356-4440.
