Which School Will My Child Go To?
While parents have the opportunity to state a preference for a particular school, actual placement, is dependent on the following criteria:
Siblings of currently enrolled students residing in the District are considered residents of the sibling’s school and will be enrolled in that school if they wish and if there is space. 
For new students, assignment occurs in the following priority order:

  • District placement needs (including facility capacities and class sizes across grade levels and schools; identified special education needs)
  • Facility capacity
  • Class sizes
  • Proximity of residence to the preferred school
  • Interdistrict attendance

What if My Child Does Not Get Into the Preferred School?
When demand exceeds capacity a waiting list is established and parents may exercise their option to have their child’s name placed on the list.  Additional placements in a school may be taken from the waiting list but may not be made until August.
