Diversity Plan– this plan guides our open enrollment procedures (between districts) and internal voluntary transfers between Waterloo schools so that we maintain the diversity so important to the success of our students.  Race is no longer a factor, but eligibility for Free or Reduced Lunch is.  Applicants should complete both the basic open enrollment form and the supplemental information form, and the application for Free or Reduced Lunch as appropriate.
