- Aug 2, 2011Amanda,Have you tried going to the WDM school board to plead your case? DMPS contacted you after the deadline about your daughter and that is no fault of yours. Did you go at the angle? You may have, but just a thought.Good luck!Nina Pack

Subject: [cowlesmontessori] open enrollment issue
Hello! It was suggested by another Cowles parent that I post our situation to this list to see if anyone else has had a similar experience and how they may have dealt with it.
My son is in 6th grade at Cowles and loves it. My daughter is in 3rd grade and had been on the waiting list at Cowles until June when the new classroom was approved. She was accepted to Cowles then, so I submitted her open enrollment app. to the WDM school district. They have denied her application because it was past the March 1 deadline. I have requested that they reverse that decision, but my contact in WDM is very doubtful it will be reversed. I've taken the approach that Montessori is not available in our district, but they are stuck on that missed deadline. DMPS cannot do anything.
Any suggestions or similar situations would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thank you so much,
