Enrollment Limits:


Please be aware that Vernon Barford is an enrollment limit school.  We will accommodate all students who live in our attendance boundaries and select Vernon Barford prior to the registration deadline.  While each year we also accept students from outside our boundaries, we have an enrollment cap in all of our programs that cannot be exceeded.  For example, this year we were only able to accept 70 Gifted and Talented Program students in grade 7 and do not typically accept Gifted and Talented students at the grade 8 or 9 level as students who join us in grade 7 remain with us through the end of grade 9 so the program is already full.  Also note that both the Gifted and Talented Program and the Literacy Program are special needs programs and as such students need to be coded appropriately by their current school if they wish to be considered for entrance to one of these programs.
