SCHOOLS OPEN TO CHOICE FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR

ROUND 3

The 3rd round of Choice for the 2022/23 school year is open.  It will be open through mid-September, or until spaces are filled.

The Choice Program considers students for in-person learning only.  Students who wish to attend the online program should apply directly with the school by clicking here.

This list includes schools that are open to Choice for new families and students.  There are some circumstances where families may apply to schools that are not on the list:

•           If your family has a sibling at a school that is not on this list you may 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 may still apply for your student to continue at the school. 

•           If you reside in a boundary school that is not on this list but are currently attending a different school, you may still apply for your student to return to their boundary school.

NOTICE TO PARENTS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:

The Choice program is open to students with disabilities.  Students with disabilities placed in a Significant Support Needs, Affective Needs or Autism Spectrum Disorder Program may apply to any program listed in the special education section below.  Spaces are subject to capacity and staffing resources.  If no programs are listed below, the district does not have the available space or staff to accommodate students from outside a school’s attendance area or outside of the Adams 12 boundaries with existing resources.
