Enrollment Overview

In-district families who wish to attend their boundary school can simply follow the instructions for enrollment on the enrollment page.

In-district families who wish to attend a school other than their boundary school can apply for Choice during the specified timelines.  In extenuating circumstances in-district students can request a change of school assignment through the family-initiated school transfer process.

Out-of-district families who wish to attend a school in the Five Star District can only apply for admissions via the Choice program.  Family-initiated transfers are only available to in-district families.
