School Choice

What is school choice, and who is allowed to exercise school choice? Children entering grades K-5 who live in the towns of Brookline, Jamaica, Newfane, and Townshend may exercise school choice. Our goal is to both allow options for families and also, make balanced class sizes to provide a positive learning environment for all of our children. Parents may apply for choice in any of the K through fifth-grade schools. Given space availability, we will work to meet as many families’ needs as possible. By exercising a local school choice options we can:

  • Create balanced class sizes in all schools

  • Eliminate, combine or divide too small or too large classes

  • Create optimal learning environments in all schools

  • Meet diverse needs that parents and families have for their children

  • Provide options
