DETROIT — The Detroit Public Schools is hosting a 4-day event aimed at increasing fall enrollment in the district.

Open Doors Day runs Wednesday through Friday and on Monday for parents who have not yet selected schools for their children.

Each school in the district will be open for tours during regular class hours. Tour time will be extended to 7 p.m. Thursday at 52 buildings. All schools are accepting enrollment for available seats this school year.

The district says schools will showcase academic and college/career-track offerings to parents and students. Programs include fine and performing arts, bilingual Instruction, aerospace and agriscience.

About 49,000 students were enrolled in the district last fall. The district had about 183,000 students in 1993.
