Sacramento City Unified School District is the 10th largest public K-12 district in California and one of the oldest in the western United States (established in 1854). SCUSD serves 43,000 students on 76 campuses, which include quality neighborhood schools and sought-after specialty programs.
As an open enrollment district, parents have many choices for the children’s education.
Addressing the student achievement gap is a top priority of the Sacramento City Unified School District – and of urban public school districts across the nation. The SCUSD Enrollment Center is a key component of the District’s multi-front focus on improving equity within our community.
The primary goal of the Enrollment Center is to provide families in the Sacramento City Unified School District with a more efficient enrollment process and access to district resources at the point of enrollment.
Elementary, middle, and high school students are assigned to a designated neighborhood school based on where the student lives, as long as the school offers the services the student needs.
Each neighborhood school has a defined geographic boundary and is intended to serve the students who live within that geographic boundary.
Open Enrollment is an opportunity for each student who resides permanently within the boundaries of Sacramento City Unified School District to apply for enrollment for schools (Grades K-8) within the district, when space is available.
Remember Open Enrollment is not a first-come, first-serve basis. You can apply for a school anytime during the enrollment period.
The Open Enrollment application for the 2020-2021 school year will available here on our website in February 4, 2020 – February 18, 2020.
