Informational Guidelines

School Choice Open Enrollment

School Choice and Magnet requests provide an opportunity for students to attend a public school other than the student’s assigned attendance boundary school, as long as the requested school is not at capacity. The parent/guardian must submit a School Choice/Magnet application during the established period.

All decisions are made based upon the Board approved Magnet Plan and the Board approved Controlled Open Enrollment Plan. Please note: submitting an application does not guarantee that the student will be approved.
