Try On a Few Schools

The best fitting outfits your kids have, shouldn't be hanging in their closets. The fit of their schools can shape their entire future.

Parents in Douglas and Sarpy counties need to step up to the plate to help tailor the learning environment and now's the time to be doing some comparison shopping.

The Learning Community's open enrollment runs from November 1 through March 15. You can choose from a variety of schools for the kids to attend but first, you have to do your homework.

The Learning Community's Lorraine Chang says, "We're trying to make it easier this year with an online tool so that not only can they go to our Web site but also explore the school districts. And once they do that exploration, the most important thing we encourage families to do is also visit the schools."

That will give you a chance to make sure a school is going to best serve your child's strengths and needs.
