Student Transfer a Hot Topic in Redmond


Should students be allowed to transfer out of the Redmond School District? There is a difference of opinion.  Redmond Schools Superintendent Shay Michaelson says it's an issue of "freedom of choice", however in these times of tight budgets the school board and even the teacher's union have concerns. Judy Newman of the Redmond Education Association says many teachers are not happy about discussing teacher cuts and benefit reductions while allowing students to walk out the door: “At least have maybe a one on one, where if one student wants to come in then they can allow one student to leave.” So far, the School Board is allowing the open enrollment policy to continue, but they want a better exit interview system to students and parents know all the benefits of the Redmond School District. They are concerned there is a misconception of overcrowding.   Superintendent Michaelson says if there is a drop in enrollment, the state allows the $6,000 per student funding formula to be based on the previous year's enrollment.
