School Choice Information

Watson Chapel School District is participating in “School Choice” for the 2015-2016 school year. Under the “Arkansas Public School Choice Act of 1989” parents of students residing outside Watson Chapel School District who want to enroll their children in Watson Chapel Schools (Edgewood Elementary, L. L. Owen Elementary, Coleman Intermediate, Watson Chapel Junior High, and Watson Chapel High School) have until May 1 to apply for the right to enroll this fall under the Arkansas Public School Choice Act. Applications are available at the Superintendent’s Office at 4100 Camden Road, Pine Bluff. The application is available in the superintendent's office and must be postmarked or delivered to the Superintendent no later than May 1, 2015 for your child to be able to enroll in August. Transfers into the Watson Chapel School District shall be granted on a nondiscriminatory basis without regard to the race of the student. Students who have been accepted and enrolled in previous years do not have to apply again. Previously-approved transfers remain valid for as long as the student attends Watson Chapel Schools. Students do not have the choice of transferring within the district because each grade level is housed on only one campus. For more information, you may contact Dr. Connie Hathorn, Superintendent at 870-879-0220.
