The deadline to enroll in a New Orleans public school for the 2015-2016 academic year is Feb. 27. On Feb. 11 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center (2200 Lafitte St.), in partnership with NEWCITY Neighborhood Partnership and Enroll NOLA, will host "School Success Now!," an event aimed at connecting parents to representatives from schools in and around New Orleans.
At the event, parents will be able to complete One App, the standard application that allows students to apply to up to eight preferred schools. There also will be people on hand from Enroll NOLA, the enrollment arm of the Recovery School District. The week of April 6, students find out which schools accepted them. Students returning to the same school are not required to complete One App.
The free event includes dinner, courtesy of Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center.
