Once accepted into the Open Choice program, your child can remain in the program until she/he graduates from high school.  However, if you are a Hartford resident and you move out of Hartford, your child will no longer be eligible to participate in the program.

Placement of Open Choice applicants is through the RSCO lottery. Eligible students with a sibling enrolled in the program are given preference in the lottery for the town in which their sibling attends school.
