Open Enrollment Application for Grades TK-8


Thank you for your interest in Sacramento City Unified School District’s Open Enrollment Application for Grades TK-8. 

The application for the 2024-2025 school year was available until February 23, 2024 at 5:00 p.m.

Step 1: Learn about the programs

Step 2: Apply online

Families who live within our district boundaries can apply through SchoolMint between February 5-23, 2024. Learn how to apply. 

Students who live outside our district boundaries can apply to schools between April 15, 2024 – May 3, 2024 through an inter-district permit transfer request

Out-of-district applicants who meet the program requirements will be accepted or go on the waiting list after qualified in-district applicants per California Education Code.

Step 3: SCUSD parent/guardians must submit an Annual Update form

If your student is currently enrolled in SCUSD, you must also submit the Mid-Year Annual Update through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal by February 23, 2024.

View directions on how to complete an Annual Update form through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal to verify your address and contact information. 

If you do not have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account, request an activation key from your student’s current school office to create an account. Once you have an active Infinite Campus Parent Portal account, follow the steps to complete the Annual Update form.

Acceptance into an open enrollment school is considered a change in enrollment and requires updated verification.

Step 4: Additional requirements

Only the following programs have additional requirements: 

Please visit each school’s website for more information on additional requirements. 

Step 5: Receive a notification communication & register

Notifications will be sent to families on March 11, 2024.  Families will receive the notification based on what preferences (email, text message or both) were selected when registering. Families can log into their SchoolMint account at anytime to see status of their application(s).

New Students Must Complete Additional Registration Form

If accepted into an open enrollment program, new students to the district will need to complete a full registration form. Families will need to provide photo identification, address verification, proof of birth documentation, and immunization records.

A link to the registration form will be included in the offer notification sent. New students will be automatically dropped from the program acceptance list, if they do not register by their offer deadline.
