Dear Bren Mar Park area families and community members,
I wanted to help get the word out that students in your area who have been redistricted to Edison HS from Annandale HS, starting this coming fall, have an opportunity to ask for “pupil placement” to stay at AHS if they wish.
This affects current 8th graders (rising 9th graders), who are not among those grandfathered in at AHS, as all current students are. All students affected by the boundary change should have gotten a letter about the transition that included information about pupil placement to AHS, but I also want to do what I can to make sure they are all aware of the possibility.
Pupil placement to AHS will be allowed on a case-by-case basis for special circumstances, such as an older sibling at AHS or other special needs or hardship issues.
Here is a link to information on pupil placement and the application form:
If you would like to apply for pupil placement for a rising 9th grader in the fall, I would be happy to talk with you more about it. See my contact information below.
I know how difficult this boundary change has been, and I’d like to do all I can to help those who would like to stay at AHS, as well as ease the transition to the new schools. I would appreciate your help in getting this information to any friends and neighbors with a rising 9th grader. Thank you.
