Lottery Results from 1st Round Choice were emailed February 16th to the email address you put on your Choice application. 

SCHOOLS OPEN TO CHOICE FOR THE 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR

ROUND 2

**IF A SCHOOL IS NOT ON THE LIST, THEN IT IS NOT OPEN FOR CHOICE FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR, EVEN IF IT IS ON THE DROP DOWN, PLEASE CHECK THE SCHOOLS LIST BELOW**

If you list a school for Choice that is not open, that school will be withdrawn. All other schools that are open will be processed. 

This list includes schools that are open to Choice for new families and students.  If a school is not on the list, then it is not open for Choice. 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.

The Choice program is open to students with disabilities.

Students with mild/moderate disabilities may apply to any school open to Choice on this list.

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.  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.
