Seymour looks at opening schools to more out-of-district students

Seymour Community School Corp. is considering opening its doors to more students who live outside the district.

Trustees discussed two policies Tuesday night involving transfer students and how students are assigned to schools. The district may begin offering open enrollment at the elementary and middle school levels as soon as this fall.

Superintendent Rob Hooker presented the information, explaining that the more students the corporation enrolls the more money it will receive in state funding. The district receives $5,500 from the state to educate each child enrolled.
