PPSD High School Registration and Open High Schools + transportation issues

As is the case for middle schools, Providence Public Schools' high school registration and open houses are coming up soon, as follows:

Tuesday, January 24, 2012, 6:00-8:00pm
Mount Pleasant High School, 434 Mt. Pleasant Avenue

E-Cubed Academy, 812 Branch Avenue

Cooley & PAIS High School, 182 Thurbers Avenue

Classical High School, 770 Westminster Street

Thursday, January 26, 2012, 6:00-8:00pm
Central High School, 70 Fricker Street

Dr. Jorge Alvarez High School, 375 Adelaide Avenue

Providence Career & Technical Academy (PCTA), 91 Fricker Street

Hope High School, 324 Hope Street

The High Schools Open House flier from PPSD is here. For more, see last week's post about middle school registration for specific how and when info. The only differences for high school registration is that high school registrations are due by February 10 and that the "neighborhood" radius is three miles rather than one and a half miles for middle schools.

Unrelated to registration but related to the three mile neighborhood designation: if you're not already paying attention to Youth 4 Change Alliance's Transportation 4 Education campaign, please take a minute to visit their website to get up to speed on the ways in which inadequate transportation for high school students to and from school poses serious challenges to their ability to attend and, of course, succeed in school. Important issue that needs our attention - thanks to Y4C for the advocacy and light-shining.
