Students must be between the ages of 5 and 19 on September 1st. Students older than 19 may qualify for the Marcola’s WIOA program. For information regarding Marcola School District’s (MSD) WIOA affiliation, please contact Mike Deeds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A student must be enrolled in at least four classes through TEACH-NW to be considered full-time and at least 50% of the coursework must be in core subject areas of English, Social Studies, Science, World Languages, Technology, Art, or CTE. Exceptions can be made for seniors who do not need core courses in order to fulfill graduation requirements.
Students enrolled in the previous school year will maintain their enrollment status in the subsequent year unless a withdraw request is made by the parent/guardian. TEACH-NW will review grade-level enrollment numbers in determining openings for the upcoming school year. Students residing in MSD will be considered first followed by students who have siblings currently enrolled in TEACH-NW. Any remaining enrollment positions will be awarded to students chosen through an equitable lottery process based on our compiled waitlist. Families who are on the waitlist will remain on the waitlist until they opt to remove themselves.
If available enrollment positions exceed the number of students on the waitlist, TEACH-NW will participate in Open Enrollment beginning March 1st and ending April 1st. All applications will be processed during the month of April.
