Hartford Region Public School Choice Programs

The study describes the current rules, governance structures, enrollment, and funding for public school choice programs in the Hartford region, with an emphasis on interdistrict magnet schools. Public school choice programs, which also include charter schools and “Open Choice” placements, were compared and contrasted with other public schools. The study also discussed the role of the 1996 Sheff v. O’Neill decision by the Connecticut Supreme Court, and subsequent agreements, on the establishment, operation, and enrollment trends of public school choice programs in the area.
