Unit #4, covering Champaign Schools, hosted an informational breakfast for the Realtor community this week providing a recap of existing news and a little bit of an update on current and future plans.
Related to Savoy, they announced that the new school in Prairie Fields Subdivision will be open between 2012 and 2013. There isn’t a formal commitment to these dates but 2013 seems realistic. Initial talks planned for Savoy’s new school by 2012 but I wouldn’t make a bet on it.
How can you get your children into the new Prairie Fields, Savoy IL school? Oh, the possibilities…
Door #1: The surest bet right now is to enroll them in Carrie Busey. When the new Savoy grade school opens Carrie Busey students will have the option of moving to the new school, guaranteed.
If you live within 1.5 miles of the corner of Prairie Rose and Sunflower Dr. in Savoy you will have ‘Proximity A’ status for the new school. Currently, this proximity A status can also be applied to Carrie Busey. This would allow Savoy households to enroll their kids in Carrie Busey immediately and bring them back to the new Savoy school when it is complete.

Update 5/26/10: Looking for Savoy, IL New Construction Info?
Proximity A doesn’t guarantee entry to Carrie Busey or any other school, but according to the info given out this morning your odds would be over 90%.
Door #3… There aren’t any other great options. If the new Savoy school would be the closest school to your address but you are more than 1.5 miles from ANY grade school you would be given ‘Proximity B’ status to Savoy. After controlled choice and sibling guideline assignments have been met the remainder of the seats are assigned: 82% to Proximity A and 18% to Proximity B.
