Welcome to the Family Resource Center
April 4, 2018
On March 21, 2018, the Lowell School Committee voted to adopt a revised waitlist policy. The revised policy has three objectives:
1. Ensure students are placed in one of the three schools selected by the family.
2. Establish clear and transparent procedures for the waitlist.
3. Move students off of the waitlist in a timely manner.
As per the new policy, the first step to implementing the revised waitlist is for families to submit in writing whether they wish to remain on the waitlist. Written requests to remain on the waitlist (postal mail or email) must be received no later than May 21, 2018 to the Family Resource Center Coordinator.
The second step, for families wishing to remain on the waitlist, is to ensure their telephone numbers are current with the Family Resource Center. Please provide the Family Resource Center at 151 Merrimack Street with yourcurrent phone numbers by May 21st.
There will be a series of informational sessions for families about the new policy. As these sessions are scheduled they will be posted on the Family Resource Center website and the district's Facebook page. I encourage you to check those sites frequently.
The policy is posted on the Family Resource Center website and I encourage all families to read through the new policy. Feel free to contact me at any time should you have questions about the new policy.
I look forward to working with the families of Lowell as we move towards implementing the new waitlist policy.
