You can also apply through the walk-in application process which begins on Wednesday, February 12 and ends on Friday, February 14, 2020. The Walk-in Application Process will be held at the Enrollment and Attendance Center, located at 5601 47th Avenue as follows:

How many school choice options can I have?

Two.  When filling out your application there will be two options available. Your first choice should be the school or program you most prefer – your No. 1 pick. If you prefer this school or program over all others, you may select “no second choice.”

If you are deciding between two programs or schools and each is equally desired, you may indicate both – one as your first choice pick and one as your second. Be aware, however; that if your second choice is approved, your child will not be placed on the first-choice waiting list.

If you are not approved for either your first or second choice, your child will placed on the first-choice waiting list ONLY.

Where can I get an application if I want to apply to one of the specialty programs?

You must complete and submit the district Open Enrollment online application as well as fulfill the specialty program requirements.

Please check the Specialty Programs for information on specific program requirements. 

How do I know you received my online application? 

Once you successfully submit an online application, you will receive a confirmation screen that you can print for your records. Confirmation emails will also be sent to the student’s parents/guardians email listed on the application.

Are my chances of getting into my first school of choice option increased if I decide to apply early?

No. It doesn’t matter when you apply, as long as you apply within the Open Enrollment time line. The Open Enrollment application process is not on a first-come, first-served basis. The District utilizes a computerized lottery system to ensure fairness.
