I am a current MHRD student, and I moved out of district. Can I stay at Morris Hills or Morris Knolls through the Choice Program?

If you move out of our district during the school year, you are permitted to stay until the end of the school year in which you move; contact the Assistant Superintendent's Office. If you would like to stay for the following year, you must fill out a School Choice application. If you move before the state application deadline, fill out an application online at www.mhrd.org. Current MHRD students who move during the school year are given preference in the admissions process to stay as Choice students for the subsequent school year.

If you move after the state deadline but during the school year, contact the Assistant Superintendent's Office. You will be given priority on the School Choice waitlist for the program you are applying to (General HS Program, Aviation, Magnet, or IB) if there are no seats available. If you are not called off the waitlist, you must withdraw at the end of the school year in which you moved. 

If you move during the summer, there is no way to stay at MHRD unless a School Choice seat is available.  Contact the Assistant Superintendent's Office. 

Please note that if you move out of district, MHRD will no longer provide transportation. You can contact your new resident district for transportation options.
