Monomoy Regional School District is now accepting school choice applications for the 2016-2017 school year. School choice gives parents the option of having their child attend school in another district. 

School choice openings are determined by the Monomoy Regional School Committee based on current enrollment and available space, according to the district website.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, February 12, 2016. Acceptance notifications will be made on or after February 14, 2016.

School choice applications for Monomoy are available on the district website here. Parents may submit applications for the regional middle or high school, Chatham Elementary School or Harwich Elementary School.
