Public school referral process

Students are referred to Minnick Schools by public school staff, who have received a signed release of information to discuss the student with Minnick staff. A tour of the school is arranged for the parent and student, who along with a public school staff member, meet the Minnick staff members during the tour and then have an opportunity to ask questions. Public school personnel, with input from the parent, complete the application for enrollment, and if the student is appropriate for Minnick and there is an opening, a date is provided by Minnick staff for the student to enroll. Transportation is provided by the sending school district.
