SEDA prepares students for success!
The School for Early Development & Achievement (SEDA) is a free public school chartered through the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Founded in 2001, SEDA is an affiliate of the Milwaukee Center for Independence (MCFI). SEDA welcomes students with and without special needs in a full inclusion environment. SEDA's K4 through second grade classes provide a solid foundation for academic success, with individualized education plans tailored to the needs of each student. Our certified staff includes teachers, therapists and classroom aides. Small class sizes allow teachers to give SEDA students individualized attention. The school offers families support and resources from the first day the child is enrolled, giving them the tools they need to help students reach their highest levels of success.
SEDA's mission is to increase developmental competencies and educational achievement of young children as a strong foundation for learning and success throughout their lives.
Student enrollment applications can be picked up beginning February 1, 2015 at SEDA and must be returned by March 1, 2015. Parents will be notified about enrollment by March 15, 2015. A complete application includes:
- Student Application
- Immunization records
- Copy of Birth Certificate (K4, K5 and New SEDA Students only)
- If applicable – Current IEP and Special Education Evaluation
Note: All K4 applicants must be 4 years old by September 1, 2015.
If the number of applications exceeds the number of seats available, a random drawing will be held to fill the available seats. Siblings of currently enrolled students will be given preference. Each applicant will be assigned a number, and then the numbers will be drawn to determine placement order, beginning with K4. If an applicant with older siblings is drawn, the older siblings will be immediately placed in their respective grade(s) as room permits. Letters will be sent to all applicants informing them of their acceptance or their number on the wait list.
The Wait List
Drawing continues until all names have been pulled. Applicant’s whose names are pulled after all the seats are filled will remain on a wait list in the order they were pulled. If a seat becomes available, we will contact the family. If the family cannot be reached, we will take the next student on the wait list. Wait lists will not be carried over from one year to the next.
