Is my child guaranteed a spot at our neighborhood school? Español
Students who live within the school attendance area get first priority for attending their neighborhood school. An attendance area is a defined geographic boundary for a school that is determined by the Board of Education. However, if classes are already filled at the time they apply, the enrollment office will assign them to a school that has space available and will place them on a waiting list according to the order in which they enrolled. Students will be admitted in that order as spots open up. Until a spot opens up, students will be placed at another school in the district.
Does my child have to attend our neighborhood school? Español
If parents/guardians would like their child to attend a school other than their assigned school, they must first submit a student registration (enrollment) form for their assigned neighborhood school. Then, they must complete a Schools of Choice/Transfer Application (available at each school site and the District Office.)
