ROUND 2

This list includes schools that are open to Choice for new families and students.  If your family has a sibling at a school that is not on this list you can still apply for siblings to attend there.  If your family has a student that is attending a school that is not on the list and you have moved out of the boundary for that school, you can apply for your student to continue at the school.  Families may apply to return to their boundary school through the Choice process even if the boundary school is not on this list.

Per Superintendent Policy, in-district applications are considered before out-of-district applications.  All Choice applications received by the January 31st deadline will be considered at the same time.  There is NOT an appeal process to denied Choice applications.
