Open Enrollment (K-8)

Open Enrollment


The 2020-2021 Open Enrollment period is now closed. The application was available February 4, 2020 at 8:00am – February 18, 2020 at 5:00pm.

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. 

What happens now?

If you have completed an Open Enrollment application for the 2020-2021 school year, the application is being processed and verified. If applications exceed the space capacity at the school of choice, a computerized lottery system is implemented.

You will be notified by U.S. mail. Letters of notification will be mailed home by Wednesday, April 1, 2020.

Once your child has been accepted into the first or second choice school, you must register them at the Enrollment Center to attend the new school of choice within the dates during the two week period of Monday, April 13 through Friday, April 24, 2020.

If you fail to complete the registration within this timeline, your child will be automatically dropped from the Open Enrollment school of choice list.

Please call the Open Enrollment Office at (916) 643-9075 with any specific questions.
