Moore schools release student enrollment plan
MOORE, Okla. (AP) - Moore Public School officials are making special enrollment and attendance plans for students displaced by the May 20 tornado.
Hundreds of homes and two public schools in Moore were destroyed. Dozens of other homes and a third school were damaged.
The enrolment plan for the 2013-2014 school year includes a temporary transfer policy to allow students living outside the district to attend their home school. The policy applies only to students whose families were displaced by the tornado and who intend to move back to Moore.
Damage to Highland East Junior High is being repaired and classes will start Aug. 16. Briarwood Elementary will be housed at Emmaus Baptist Church in Oklahoma City while the school is rebuilt. Plaza Towers Elementary will be housed at Central Junior High in Moore.
