Decisions for changes in assignment will be based on capacity and these criteria:

  • Childcare: Current childcare circumstances directly impact the student’s ability to attend in-person or remote.
  • Hardship: Any condition that directly interferes with the student's ability to attend in-person or remote. (Examples of hardship requests may include a change in family circumstance, a change in parent/guardian's employment, a safety concern, a medical or health condition or emergency.) 
  • Sibling: Family circumstances related to a sibling's enrollment or sibling situations tied to a multi-student household.
