(Link directs to external application website)

Schools of Choice (SOC) is the annual open enrollment process is when parents/guardians wish to register/admit/enroll their student(s) at a school other than the designated school that is in their attendance area within their district. SOC is done via online application beginning March 1st where students are selected based on a random, unbiased, “lottery” process. SOC results depend on many factors including pupil enrollment by school and grade level, district capacity, and the total number of applicants vs. openings. For questions please contact your child's school site or the office of Child Welfare & Attendance.
