Champaign Schools Launch Schools of Choice Dashboard For Parents

Fri, 03/01/2013 - 10:11am

Champaign Unit 4 Schools has added a helpful new dashboard to its online registration system for parents entering the District’s Schools of Choice process. 

The online registration site allows parents to fill out kindergarten registration paperwork for their child via the District website, including making their selections in the Schools of Controlled Choice system. Parents using this system still need to bring proof of residency to the District’s Family Information Center (1103 N. Neil St. in Champaign) to verify their residency in the Unit 4 district. 

The new dashboard features allow parents to see vital stats about each elementary school’s registration numbers throughout the registration period, March 1-28. The dashboard displays the kindergarten capacity at each school, their proximity to each school, their sibling priority to schools, schools offering ESL services, and which middle school each elementary school will feed into. 

Parents can also see how many other families with sibling or proximity priority have listed each school as their #1 choice. These statistics will be updated throughout the month as applications are confirmed and processed at the Family Information Center. Parents will be able to log in to the website to check the registration numbers throughout the month, but will need to visit the Family Information Center to make any official changes to their school rankings. 

“We are excited about the new dashboard because it allows parents to have even more information as they enter the Schools of Choice process, “ said Superintendent Dr. Judy Wiegand. “We want to make this process as transparent and parent-friendly as possible, and we believe this is a step in that direction.”
