I'm assuming you're talking about charter schools? Your best bet is to contact specific schools directly. Most charter schools hold lotteries to determine who gets to enroll, and it's likely that the lottery for the 2015/2016 school year has already happened. Most charter schools have wait lists too, but those are also typically determined by lottery. Charter schools don't charge tuition (they're considered public schools). Since you're moving so close to the beginning of the school year, I'd suggest researching the schools in your new area. You should definitely be able to enroll your daughters in a public school near you; you may also have other private school options if that's something you're interested in. The below website has information about charter schools in Rhode Island, so you might be able to find something there as well: http://www.ride.ri.gov/StudentsFamilies/RIPublicSchools/CharterSchools.aspx

Good luck!
