Neil Dorosin and school choice in Brooklyn, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSJ

Neil Dorosin was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 director of high school operations for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 NY Department of Education, back when Atila Abdulkadiroglu, Parag Pathak and I helped cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m design a school choice system for high school admissions. He later became cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Pied Piper of school choice when he founded cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice, which led cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 effort to redesign choice in a number of American cities. He still lives in NYC, and he's also a dad. The WSJ has made him cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poster boy (poster dad?) for this year's middle school choice in Brooklyn (which apparently has some recently introduced random elements):

"His family’s choice gives a glimpse into how families grapple with decisions as Mayor Bill de Blasio ’s administration experiments with ways to better integrate one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nation’s most segregated school systems. The School Diversity Advisory Group, appointed by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mayor, cautioned last month that if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city public schools lose students to private schools or ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r options, “it will become even more difficult to create high-quality integrated schools that serve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 interests of all students.”

School choice in Washington D.C., by Thomas Toch in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Washington Post magazine

In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Washington Post magazine, Thomas Toch writes about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 accomplishments and limitations of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school choice system in Washington D.C., and school choice more generally. He's a thoughtful observer of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 education scene, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 director of FutureEd. (I gacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 piece is only online now and will be in print on Saturday...)

The Lottery That’s Revolutionizing D.C. Schools
by Thomas Toch.  Photos by Evelyn Hockstein, MARCH 20, 2019

The whole thing is worth reading.  Here's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 concluding paragraph:

"In forcing traditional public schools to compete more directly, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 common enrollment system has pressed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to strengcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365mselves, as Henderson suggests. It has made school choice fairer and more efficient. And it has changed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dynamic between Washington’s public and private schools. Families are finding public Montessori programs, dual-language opportunities like Noah’s and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r options that were offered mainly in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 private sector in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past. But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 long wait lists at some schools and empty spots at ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 My School DC lottery has produced make clear that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 success of school choice in Washington will ultimately require creating more strong schools. “If we don’t have capacity in A-plus schools for all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 kids, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n some kids aren’t going to go to A-plus schools,” Roth told me. “No system of choice can fix that.”

School choice among different kinds of schools

Chalkbeat on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 changing face of school districts, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 role played by universal-enrollment school choice:

A ‘portfolio’ of schools? How a nationwide effort to disrupt urban school districts is gaining traction

"Several years ago, Indianapolis Public Schools looked like a lot of urban school districts. The vast majority of students attended traditional public schools, though enrollment was dwindling, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district had an adversarial relationship with its small but growing number of charter schools.
"That’s no longer true. The district is actively turning over schools to charter operators, and it’s rolling out a common enrollment system for district and charter schools that could make it easier for charters to grow. Nearly half of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district’s students now attend charters or district schools with charter-like freedoms.
...
"A growing number of philanthropists, advocates, and policymakers say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way to improve schools is to upend cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 traditional school district. Usually pointing to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same cities as models — Indianapolis, along with Denver, New Orleans, and Washington D.C. — cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y want to see more charter schools and more district schools run like charter schools.
...
"Anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r piece of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 portfolio playbook is supporting enrollment systems that allow families to easily choose among district and charter schools.
"Adding new schools and new choices can make things harder on parents, who must navigate several enrollment processes to make a choice and get assigned to a school. Common enrollment systems create a single place to navigate it all — while also ensuring that all parents are exposed to new schools, and making it especially clear to district leaders which schools are attracting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fewest students.
“In addition to efficiency for families, unified enrollment helps cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system make better decisions about which schools to replicate, recruit, incubate, scale, and maximize and, perhaps, where to locate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m,” according to an Education Cities report.
"Denver, New Orleans, and Washington D.C. all have common enrollment systems, and Indianapolis just adopted one. In Denver, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 use of a streamlined system did in fact increase enrollment in charters among low-income students and English-language learners, though in New Orleans parents said it was actually harder to navigate initially."

Summary:This bill would require agencies that use algorithms or ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r automated processing methods that target services, impose penalties, or police persons to publish cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 source code used for such processing. It would also require agencies to accept user-submitted data sets that can be processed by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 agencies’ algorithms and provide cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 outputs to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 user.

OneMatch for Indianapolis schools opens today

Here's an article that I think does an unusually good job of explaining both cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 benefits of a unified enrollment school choice system, and some of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 objections it is facing as it is introduced.

1 Application Will Cover Enrollment For IPS And Indy Charter Schools  by ERIC WEDDLE.

"A new online enrollment system for families to enroll cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir kids in grades K-12 for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2018-19 school year at Indianapolis Public Schools and most Marion County charter schools begins Wednesday.

"The so-called common enrollment process is a major shift for city parents and schools. Families will longer fill out separate paperwork for IPS magnet schools and neighborhood schools, or need to remember a smattering of enrollment deadlines among dozens of charter schools.

"Instead, families will log on to a website, pick cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 schools cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y want to attend, rank cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m in order by preference and wait to find out which school cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir child will attend. The first enrollment round begins Wednesday, Nov. 15, and ends January 15. Enrollment results will be announced February 15

"Cities, including Denver and New Orleans, offer a variation of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 one-application approach. Support in Indianapolis has come IPS, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Mayor’s Office, most of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s charter schools and local education reform group The Mind Trust.

"As cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new system has been rolled out some have raised concerns over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 complexity and transparency of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process. 

"Caitlin Hannon, founder of Enroll Indy, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 local nonprofit managing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OneMatch enrollment system, says it creates equity by simplifying where families get information about schools and using a computer algorithm to match a child with an open seat.

“It doesn't matter who your parent is,” Hannon says about how students are selected to attend schools with long waiting lists.  “It doesn't matter who you know or how much money you have or if you bake brownies for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school secretary.”

"The technology behind cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system is similar to what is used for National Resident Matching Program through which most American doctors get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir first job, according to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice which creates cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 algorithm used by OneMatch.

"Families are expected to use Enroll Indy’s website to find a school that matches cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir need and interest, such as it academic performance, after-school care and transportation options.

"Though OneMatch, also part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Enroll Indy website, families can choose up to ten schools cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y would want cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir child to attend and rank cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 schools in priority.

"The algorithm factors in priories associated with each student -- such as whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y live in a pre-drawn school boundary zone, if a sibling already attends a school and if a parent works for IPS -- and assigns a random lottery number.

The system runs everyone’s choice at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same time and fills open seats based on those factors, Hannon says. IPS will no longer offer waitlist positions for programs that reach capacity. Racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, Hannon says, students will be assigned cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir top option based on availability.

“This is not about putting you in a school that isn't a school that you want,” says Hannon, a former IPS School Board commissioner. “This is about you telling us what you want, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 priorities of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school, and your random lottery number. Those are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only three factors.”

"Unlike in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past, Hannon says, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system will also explain to families why cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y did not get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y wanted.

"The new system requires all schools taking part to use a single enrollment application, follow three enrollment windows and use a random lottery process to select which students make it into popular academic programs.

"But not all Indianapolis charter schools are taking part, including Christel House Academy.

Carey Dahncke, head of schools, says cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 charter network is taking a wait-and-see approach to OneMatch for its two schools.

“Our enrollment has been strong, so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 idea of changing practice just didn't seem necessary,” he says.

"Phalen Leadership Academy also did not sign on but two IPS innovation schools managed by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 company will use OneMatch.

"The two networks will continue to enroll students using cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own system and deadlines.

"The IPS Community Coalition, a group critical of ongoing changes within IPS, has described cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OneMatch system as being akin to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dystopian Hunger Games series. In a recent Facebook post, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 group said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 enrollment system dictates schools choice, not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 parents.

"The parents only provide cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 list of 10. This starts to look like some strange robotic, authoritarian system of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 allocation of scarce resources (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 'good' schools), kind of like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hunger Games. This looks like an inhumane system, not a parent and child-friendly one," cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 group wrote.

"In a public response, Hannon disputed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 notion that families are not choosing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir schools.

"We don’t decide anything for families -- cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y just apply and we run a lottery -- cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same way it’s been done for years but in a more efficient place so families don’t have to apply all over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city," she wrote.

"Enrollment for 2018-19 will be held during three rounds: Nov. 15 - Jan. 15 with results on Feb. 15; Jan. 16 - April 15 with results on May 15; April 16 - June 15 with results on June 30. Late enrollment starts July 1.

Enrollment for IPS preschool students will continue to be handled by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SchoolMint application system."

School Choice in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 District of Columbia: apparently not all according to algorithm

The Washington Post has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story: it seems that some politically connected families were able to get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 schools cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y wanted without going through cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school choice algorithm...

Secret report shows ‘special’ treatment for public officials in D.C. school lottery

"Former D.C. Public Schools chancellor Kaya Henderson routinely helped well-connected parents — including two senior aides to Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) — bend or break cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rules of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 District’s notoriously competitive school lottery to enroll cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children at coveted schools, according to a confidential report obtained by The Washington Post.

The report, based on an investigation by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 D.C. Inspector General’s Office, describes in remarkable detail how Henderson used her power as head of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school system to place cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 children of those with political clout at campuses cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y could not ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rwise access through cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 random lottery, which every year leaves thousands of families on waiting lists for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir desired schools.

Inspector General Daniel Lucas found that Henderson misused her authority by giving preferential treatment to seven of 10 people who requested special school placements for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2015 lottery season. The investigation did not examine cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of Henderson’s tenure from November 2010 to September 2016.

[Read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 confidential inspector general’s report obtained by The Post]

Henderson openly acknowledged in interviews with investigators that she gave special treatment to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 children of government officials. Asked about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 help she gave City Administrator Rashad M. Young, a top Bowser cabinet official whose salary is $295,000, Henderson said D.C. officials “do not necessarily get paid as much as we should.”

The former chancellor bestowed such favors even as she dismissed pleas for special consideration from those with less influence, such as a deaf Vietnamese immigrant whose request that her daughter be allowed to attend a school where she could practice sign language was rejected.

The findings could shake public confidence in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s school lottery, which has been held up as a national model. It also raises troubling questions for Bowser, whose defense of her cabinet officials’ roles in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scandal is undercut by details in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 report."

School choice in Chicago: GoCPS

Here's an account from New Schools for Chicago:
Chicago Board of Education Approves cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Single Application
"Yesterday, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Chicago Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously in favor of moving to a single application for all public high schools in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city. This decision comes just after a recently released report from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice (IIPSC) and New Schools for Chicago outlining cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 feedback and recommendations of parents from across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city. "
**********

And here's a news story from WTTW:

"The Board of Education voted unanimously Wednesday to approve a new common application for students entering district high schools this fall. The new model, called “GoCPS,” is aimed at transparency and efficiency in that application process, according to CPS Chief Education Officer Janice Jackson.

“We cannot have a system that allows some people to feel that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y can access with ease while ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs feel like it’s too complicated and choose to disengage," she said. "So moving forward, GoCPS allows us to bring more people into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fold, but it also allows us an opportunity to use technology to support cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.”

In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 current system, students can fill out multiple applications and receive offers from high schools.

With GoCPS, students will fil out a single application, rank cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir school choices and receive a maximum of two offers – one each from a selective and non-selective school. If cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y choose to reject those offers, students would go through cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process a second time and receive new offers.

If those too are rejected, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 student would be placed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir neighborhood school with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 option to apply for a transfer within cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first 20 days of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school year."

School choice discussion in Indianapolis

The Indy Star has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story:
Will Indy adopt central enrollment system for schools?

"A group is developing a one-stop enrollment system for Indianapolis schools but will cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s largest education provider take part?

Indianapolis Public Schools leaders are weighing whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r to join Enroll Indy, a nonprofit with plans to launch a unified enrollment process for IPS schools and charter schools within cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district’s boundaries by next year.

The goal: Help parents find a school for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children in a city with growing options that feature charter schools, innovation network schools, magnet programs and more.

So far, IPS hasn’t made any commitments, though moving toward such a system is among cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district’s priorities, IPS Superintendent Lewis Ferebee said.

“Whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Enroll Indy is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best fit for IPS to go down that path is to be determined,” Ferebee told IndyStar. “The concept itself could definitely benefit our families.”

Advocates for a central enrollment system say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way parents now shop for schools is disorganized. To find cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best fit, parents must juggle different application deadlines and know what programs are out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, a daunting task with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city now playing host to more than 40 charter schools.

Wealthier families can find cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process easier to navigate, placing lower-income families at a disadvantage, organizers say.

“If we’re going to say we have choice,” said Caitlin Hannon, Enroll Indy’s founder, “everybody should have equitable access to that choice.”

Hannon, a former IPS School Board member, said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 group is hoping to launch its first application process next fall for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2018-19 school year. But first it needs buy-in from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s schools, and Hannon started making her pitch to IPS this month.

A 2015 report by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice found that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s schools are in “intense competition to enroll students.”

“There is no incentive for IPS, for example, to tell parents about charter schools. Or for Ball State University to ensure families understand cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 IPS magnet school application,” according to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 report. “In both cases, doing so would not be in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir best self-interest. For families, though cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 distinction between authorizers is less important. Parents are looking for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best school for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir child, regardless of who runs it. For cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m, not having cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 information in one easy-to-access place doesn’t make sense.”

Families would apply through Enroll Indy to any participating school, where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y’d rank cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir school preferences and be matched with a program.

Hannon said families would be asked cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir priorities, such as location and where siblings attend. Students are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n matched to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school “cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y want cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y can get into, based on those priorities,” Hannon said.

“I like to explain it as all schools lotteries happening at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same moment…,” she said.

An analysis of a similar system run in Denver Public Schools found not enough seats existed in high-performing schools to serve demand. That meant students often were assigned to lower-performing schools than initially requested.

But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system would come with perks, Hannon said. Parents would no longer have to hold spots for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children at multiple schools, making it easier for administrators to plan staffing needs...."

School choice in Indianapolis

The Indy Star has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 changes to come: School choice made easier for Indy parents

"The good news is that change is coming. A new non-profit organization, Enroll Indy, launched by a Mind Trust Education Entrepreneur Fellowship, is working with Indianapolis Public Schools, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Mayor’s Office and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 State Charter School Board to streamline cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school application process for public school families. Its plan includes a new school information source for parents to learn about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir options; a robust effort to work directly with families on navigating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process; a streamlined application that includes both IPS and charter schools; a shared deadline across all schools and a much-needed window of transparency into school enrollment.
For nearly a year, stakeholders in both IPS and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 charter sector have worked togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r on recommendations focused on making enrollment more efficient, equitable and transparent. As such, Enroll Indy is poised to launch a system this fall that will dramatically improve access for all families.
This new system not only will make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 enrollment process easier for all families, but it will provide robust data and information to our city as a whole. It will provide new information on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 type of schools families want and where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y want cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m, meaning districts and authorizers will be able to collaborate strategically to meet cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 needs of families, racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r than starting schools with no information on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 neighborhood’s needs or wants. This data also will enable us to ensure schools are behaving fairly and serving all students, not just those who are easiest to educate."

Common enrollment system launches in Detroit, primarily for charter schools

A school choice system in Detroit is starting with charter schools.
The Detroit Free Press has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story:
Common enrollment system launches in Detroit today

"The nonprofit Excellent Schools Detroit is launching a common enrollment system today that is designed to make signing up for school easier and more equitable for Detroit families.

"Parents of children entering kindergarten or ninth grade in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fall will be able to use cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new system during a 30-day window starting April 1. More than 40 schools are on board, most of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m charters, as well as one private school

"Detroit Public Schools was part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 planning process but is not participating. Spokeswoman Michelle Zdrodowski said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district is in a state of transition and whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r it joins is a decision that should be made by a school board once cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district transitions from emergency management back to local control.
...
"Common enrollment has been a hot topic for years in conversations about education reform in Detroit.

"In fall 2014, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nonprofit Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice issued a report that said Detroit should launch a citywide enrollment system.

"The report highlighted cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 complexity of Detroit's public school market, with roughly 100 schools in DPS,  dozens of charter school districts (made up of about 100 schools) and 15 schools in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 EAA, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 state reform district. It said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system is hard for parents to navigate and fuels unhealthy competition among schools for students.

"Families have been disappointed. Families have been hurt, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y don't feel a lot of trust in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 different systems," said Maria Montoya, director of communications and strategic partnerships for Enroll Detroit. She was part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 team that helped design cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 common enrollment system in New Orleans, called OneApp, in 2012.

"The idea that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir application will be fairly considered, and it's not a person (at a school) picking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m out and saying, 'We don't need any more autistic kids,' it's really hard for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to believe."

"A committee that included officials from Excellent Schools Detroit, DPS, charter schools, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Education Achievement Authority, community groups and parents designed Enroll Detroit. It was built by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 New York-based Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice and Acumen Solutions."

Boston Globe looks at school choice in Denver and New Orleans

In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boston Globe, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's a nice story by Jeremy C. Fox that focuses on school choice in Denver and New Orleans and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 work that IIPSC has done cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re: Denver’s unified school enrollments may offer Boston a lesson

"A few years ago, parents here faced a bewildering array of options when selecting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children’s schools. There were more than 60 enrollment systems within Denver Public Schools alone, and anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r set for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s charter schools, each with distinct timelines and applications.

The confusion discouraged many low-income families from choosing at all, while parents with greater resources took advantage of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 complexity to “game cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system” in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir favor, residents said.

“It did not promote equity with families,” said Karen Mortimer, a Denver public education advocate. “If you were in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 know, you got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 better schools.”

But four years after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Mile-High City adopted a common enrollment system that provides one-stop shopping for traditional, charter, magnet, and innovation schools, parents praise cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ease and convenience of finding cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 right match.

Interviews with Denver parents, educators, and community groups suggest that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s largely controversy-free adoption of unified enrollment offers lessons for Boston, where a similar proposal by Mayor Martin J. Walsh and school leaders has met with vehement opposition from some parents.
...
"Since Denver and New Orleans became cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first US cities to unify enrollment in 2012, several ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r urban communities have followed.

Of about a dozen US cities that have attempted to adopt cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system, half have stalled amid political conflicts, according to Neil Dorosin, executive director of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice, a nonprofit group that builds and implements school assignment systems."

A look back at school choice in New Orleans

Here's an article discussing IIPSC's work in New Orleans, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fall issue of Education Next:

The New Orleans OneAppCentralized enrollment matches students and schools of choice, By Douglas N. Harris, Jon Valant and Becá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ny Gross

"In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans families could choose from an assortment of charter, magnet, and traditional public schools. The city initially took a decentralized approach to choice, letting families submit an application to each school individually and allowing schools to manage cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own enrollment processes. This approach proved burdensome for parents, who had to navigate multiple application deadlines, forms, and requirements. Moreover, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system lacked a mechanism for efficiently matching students to schools and ensuring fair and transparent enrollment practices. The city has since upped cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ante with an unprecedented degree of school choice and a highly sophisticated, centralized approach to school assignment.

"Today, New Orleans families can apply to 89 percent of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city’s public schools by ranking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir preferred schools on a single application known as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OneApp (see Figure 1). The city no longer assigns a default school based on students’ home addresses. Instead, a computer algorithm matches students to schools based on families’ ranked requests, schools’ admission priorities, and seat availability. Experience with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OneApp in New Orleans reveals both cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 significant promise of centralized enrollment and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 complications in designing a system that is technically sound but clear to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 public, and fair to families but acceptable to schools. The OneApp continues to evolve as its administrators learn more about school-choosing families and school-choosing families learn more about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OneApp. The approach remains novel, and some New Orleanians have misunderstood or distrusted cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 choice process. The system’s long-term success will require both continued learning and growth in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 number of schools families perceive to be high-quality options."

Indianapolis schools discuss universal enrollment

Market design first steps: Report: IPS, Indy Charter Schools Should Use Same Enrollment Application

"A report out this week is urging cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Indianapolis Public Schools district and city charter schools to consider partnering on a one-stop-shop approach for enrollment.
What cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 report found, basically, is enrolling in an Indianapolis public school -- be it IPS or a charter -- can be bewildering process for parents to navigate.
Students applying to an IPS magnet school have a different steps of enrollment based on whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are new or returning to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district.
Some charters require in-person applications while ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs allow online submissions. The deadlines for all public city schools are not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same.
“If you think about applying for college, trying to navigate different deadlines and applications -- that is what it looks like for parents now in Indy,” said Caitlin Hannon, executive director of Teach Plus in Indianapolis which commissioned cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 a study of enrollment processes for IPS, charter schools and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir authorizers.
The report, written by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice, says cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 IPS enrollment system and efforts by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city and local nonprofits to promote school options still leave parents and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs confused.
Nathan Ringham, an IPS parent quoted in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 report, said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is no one source to review deadlines, requirements or ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r issues related to enrollment.
“I shouldn’t have had to go to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 state department of education to figure out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 birth date cutoff for kindergarten,” he said. “I shouldn’t have to go to one page to see how we enroll as a new student and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r to see how to enroll in a magnet.”
In addition, enrollment projections by schools have been below target in past years because schools are unsure where students will attend until cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school year begins. When teachers are hired months earlier based on flawed enrollment projections projections, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y wind up being transferred to ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r schools or seeking anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r job, according to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 report.
The institute and recommends that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city to consider a so-called common enrollment process. So racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r than apply for multiple schools, a parent could fill out one application and rank cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir preference.
Cities, including Denver and New Orleans, offer a variation of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 one-application approach that also provides information about each school, such as academic performance, so parents can compare schools.
“If cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first choice is an IPS school and second is a charter and third is anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r charter -- that is fine,” Hannon said about how a common application would be filled out. “Then all of those would go into a lottery process where an algorithm is built and people are given cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir preferences by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have listed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m and based on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 requirements of each school.”
Data that could be collected in an open enrollment, Hannon said, could be used to identify whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r a charter school is "creaming" -- taking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best students who apply -- or if students from one part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city are seeking schools outside cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir neighborhood boundries. 
IPS Superintendent Lewis Ferebee has recently said he is open to discussing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 common application."

How has IIPSC effectively launched this current reform movement with unified enrollment?
Neil: IIPSC principals first worked togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r in New York City in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 very early Joel Klein years, and in this environment cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were almost no charter schools. This illustrates that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ideas within unified enrollment are not specific to any particular type of school- charter schools, district schools, non-public schools, etc. They are ideas that allow administrators to serve families better. To bring efficiency, equity, and transparency to enrollment and choice systems.
When we began working with Denver we realized that what we were doing requires district and charter sectors to work togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r in a whole new way, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se changes are fundamental to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way cities manage school choice and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n hopefully implement portfolio reform strategy. We are committed to political neutrality and always make sure that people in cities know that our work is meant to advance healthy choice processes, not to advance any political position. We love cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fact that people in cities all over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country now see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ideas and guiding principles of unified enrollment systems as things that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y believe in and want to advance in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir cities.
Tell us about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 team who helped design cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 unified enrollment system.
NeilAl Roth shared cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Nobel Prize in economics for applying matching cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ory science to solve real world problems. Most famous examples include cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Medical Residency match (matching residents and hospitals), kidney donor exchange programs (identifying compatible pairs of donors and recipients from VERY long waitlists, and saving many lives), and for unified enrollment work.Parag Pathak was his student, and is now a full professor at MIT. Atila Abdulkadiroglu co-wrote cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 seminal paper on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market design approach to school choice in 2003 and joined Al and Parag in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first schools project – in New York City in 2003. Al, Parag and Atila are all now members of our advisory board and active participants in our projects with cities.

School choice in Detroit?

The Detroit Free Press has a story on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 current debate: Common enrollment: Lessons for Detroit

When preparing to move to Washington, D.C., in 2012, Erika and Lamont Harrell spent so much time applying to charter schools that it felt like a full-time job.
They filled out 24 applications — a dozen for each of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir two sons — and juggled different school websites and deadlines.
That was before My School DC, a common enrollment and lottery system that has one application and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same deadline schedule for most of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city's publicly funded schools, including charters. A week-long task one year turned into 20 minutes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next.
"The process is just so much easier, and it's less stressful," said Erika Harrell, 33.
More than 200 miles away, in Newark, N.J., cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first days of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school year in September were marked by student and parent protests of a similar reform effort called One Newark. Some parents complained that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children were matched to far-away schools that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y didn't put on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir list.
Common enrollment — in which a computer algorithm tries to match kids to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir top-ranked schools — is one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main reform ideas bubbling out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 discussions around reshaping public education in Detroit.
Changing how kids enroll won't improve academics — a significant issue in a city where more than 80% of ranked schools in Detroit Public Schools are in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom quarter statewide. But supporters say it would give all families an equal shot at seats in sought-after schools, bring order to what is now a chaotic enrollment process and stabilize school rosters earlier in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year. The data gleaned from it could inform decisions on which schools should close.
Common enrollment can be tough to sell to parents, at least initially.
The cities that have common enrollment — such as Denver, Newark, New Orleans and Washington — offer lessons for Detroit.
Officials cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have had significant successes in getting kids matched with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir top-choice schools.
But no system is perfect. In Denver, for example, researchers say common enrollment has been stable and successful, but lingering gaps remain in terms of participation by minority, special-ed and low-income students. They also said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city needs more seats in high-performing schools to meet demand.
Improving choice for all students
Common enrollment works best when all or most schools are involved, experts say. The systems have centralized management.
In Denver, where common enrollment launched in 2012, 100% of public schools participate, including charters.
Denver officials say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y're happy with how it's working. In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system's first three years, between 76% and 89% of all students were matched with one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir choices, and between 64% and 72% got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir first choice school, according to a recent study by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Seattle-based Center on Reinventing Public Education.
"Previously ... we had over 60 application processes and time lines, so only cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 savviest of parents were able to take advantage of school choice," said Roberta Walker, manager of choice and enrollment for Denver Public Schools.
The school district was an early supporter. A promise of transparency (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system is audited annually) and some pressure from foundations that fund charter schools helped bring charters on board, said Mike Kromrey, executive director of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 community group Togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Colorado.
Denver Public Schools runs cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system, called SchoolChoice.
Getting everybody on board could be stickier in Detroit. The city has a decentralized education system with roughly 100 schools within Detroit Public Schools, 64 charter school districts (made up of 98 schools) and a 15-school reform district for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 state's worst schools.
And with a dozen charter authorizers, Detroit has far more than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r cities. In Denver, for example, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 public school district is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only charter authorizer.
The charter sector has exploded in Detroit in recent years, leading to fierce competition for students.
"It takes a great deal of trust across schools for everybody to commit to a centralized process," said Becá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ny Gross, senior analyst for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Center on Reinventing Public Education.
"A charter school is not naturally going to be inclined to hand over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir enrollment process. ... Each child comes with a bundle of resources that funds cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir school."
In New Orleans, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 common enrollment system called OneApp brought order and transparency to a chaotic process. But in a city where about 95% of students attend charters, some of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 highest-performing schools have opted out.
"If every school isn't going to be in it, it doesn't resolve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 problem that it was created to resolve. It doesn't give you access to every school," said Karran Harper Royal, a New Orleans resident and outspoken critic of OneApp.
Supporters say common enrollment has made it hard for schools to "cream" students — using back-door methods to selectively admit children or push ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs out. A principal couldn't specifically seek out students with good test scores, for example.
"In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 absence of any meaningful regulation, this stuff can happen all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time," said Neil Dorosin, executive director of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 New York-based Institute for Innovation in Public School Choice. The group helps build common enrollment systems.
In Newark, common enrollment was attacked by some families who complained siblings were split up. Mayor Ras Baraka publicly blasted what he called superintendent Cami Anderson's "secret" algorithm. Anderson has argued that, despite some initial bugs, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system has improved school access.
Newark officials have since added a feature that will allow families to move all of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same school, Dorosin said.
Centralized authority
In cities with common enrollment, one authority oversees cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 systems.
Whereas cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 public school system runs common enrollment in Denver, in Washington, D.C., it falls under cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deputy mayor for education. New Orleans' system is run by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 state reform Recovery School District, with input from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 local Orleans Parish School Board. The state-operated Newark Public Schools district handles enrollment cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re.
The applications that parents fill out are processed by a central clearinghouse.
In contrast, a Detroit parent who wants to sign up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir kid for a DPS school today has to make an in-person visit. Three schools require an entrance exam, and one a performing arts audition. About two dozen DPS schools require an application.
The city's charter schools have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own applications, due dates and lotteries.
"There's no coordination now. A kid can get into Cass Tech High School and four different charters. The schools often don't know if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y're actually going to get that kid" until well after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school year starts, Dorosin said. "It makes it difficult (for schools) to plan."
Districts don't get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 full amount of state funding for students who enroll after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fall count day.
The nonprofit education group Excellent Schools Detroit is pushing for a new commission to oversee school openings and closings, transportation and enrollment across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city. The proposal comes as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Coalition for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Future of Detroit Schoolchildren is facing a March 31 deadline to come up with proposed school reforms.
...
Implementing full common enrollment in Detroit would likely require legislative changes, experts say. But lawmakers might balk.
"The expansion of school choice and putting parents in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 driver's seat has been cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 general path cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 government has been on. If recommendations were to come ... that restricted choice and artificially managed or regulated choice, I would ... think that many in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Legislature" would have serious questions, said Gary Naeyaert, executive director of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Great Lakes Education Project, a charter lobbying group.
Naeyaert said he believes "managed and regulated choice is not free and full choice."

School choice in Denver: how do schools communicate with parents?

The Denver Post reports on developments in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school choice system cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, as parents and schools gain experience: Marketing, a need and benefit for Denver schools

"As cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 novelty wears off for a process that reformed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way Denver parents pick a school for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir kids, school leaders are becoming more sophisticated in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir marketing, trying to find students who are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 right fit.


"The change comes even as participation is decreasing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 three-year-old SchoolChoice application process, which allows parents to fill out only one form to go to any district school. Options, meanwhile, increase each year, and by August, Denver Public Schools will have 200 schools, including 53 charters."
...
"According to data in a report published by A-Plus Denver, 73 percent of new kindergartner families picked a school through cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 district's SchoolChoice process in 2014, down from 80 percent in 2012.

"Eighth-graders picking a high school have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lowest participation of students in transition grades, with 55 percent filling out a form in 2014, down from 60 percent in 2012.
**************
My understanding is that students not filling out a form are opting in to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir local school.
