SCHOOLS OPEN TO CHOICE FOR THE 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR

ROUND 1

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.

NOTICE TO PARENTS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:

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.

                                                                          MAGNET SCHOOLS

    All grades are posted open at our magnet schools but it does not necessarily mean there is space available in all grades.  Kindergarten is always open to fill 50 spaces at each school (75 at Hulstrom).

    Applications received for grades that do not have space available will be kept on file for the 2019-20 wait list to fill as needed.

    If a student was on the wait list for the previous school year, you must re-apply for possible placement in the

    2019-20 school year as the wait lists are good for only one school year.
