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?

After digitalizing their process due to district closures, SCUSD’s Enrollment Center is sending Open Enrollment K-8 notification emails out April 14 and 15 to parent/guardian’s email listed on the application submitted in February. Parents will need to accept or decline the invitation to attend the school of choice by following the instructions in the email. The deadline to respond is April 30, 2020

If you do not receive an email, please check your spam folder. The emails are sent from and titled “SCUSD 2020-2021 Open Enrollment Lottery Results.”

Please be patient as the Enrollment Center processes all the Open Enrollment acceptance requests. A technician will respond to each email the Enrollment Center receives.

Please send an email to the Enrollment Center if you still have not received a notification email or have other questions for our Open Enrollment technicians.
