Apply for Intradistrict School Choice

Policy F33-L Intradistrict Choice, K-8, allows students in grades K-8 to attend any of the schools in the Harwood Unified Union School District (Crossett Brook Middle School, Fayston Elementary School, Harwood Union Middle School, Moretown Elementary School, Brookside Primary School, Waitsfield Elementary School, Warren Elementary School), regardless of the town of residence within the school district. 

While intradistrict choice is possible, the District must consider several factors when reviewing applications. One of the most significant considerations is the capacity of the requested school. We ask that you please review the Intradistrict School Choice Procedures carefully, as the document explains the timeline and considerations involved in the approval process.

Bus transportation shall be made available where possible, but it is not guaranteed.

Do You Need to Apply for IDC in 2024-25?


  • Your current PK4 - grade 7 student wishes to transfer to a different HUUSD school in 2024-25.
  • Your student will transition to a middle school, and they wish to attend a school other than the school in your town of residence.
  • Your 4-year-old PreKindergarten student is NOT attending the school in the town you live in, and you want them to stay at the current school for kindergarten (e.g., you live in Waterbury but your PreK4 student is attending Moretown Elem this year for PreK; AND you want your student to stay at Moretown Elem for kindergarten). 


  • Your student is already participating in choice, and they will stay in the same school building for 2024-25.
  • You want your child to attend the school in the town you live in (e.g., you live in Moretown and you want your child to attend Moretown).


The form for 2024-25 is now CLOSED.  


Mail or email the superintendent with your request. Applications may be responded to immediately, if it appears clear that such a response will not result in exceeding the capacity of a particular class/school, or may be held until seven days before the start of school, if it's necessary to ensure that honoring such a request does not exceed the class size capacity within the requested school.
