Next Steps:

Complete the appropriate region school zone application based upon your address.

Submit the region school application via the online application system.

  • Confirmation email will be sent upon submission.
  • If you do not receive a confirmation email, you did not submit the application.

Receive a school assignment email.

  • On time/lottery applications = school assignment email sent in late March/early April each year.
  • Late/ongoing applications = school assignment email sent within 24-48 hours.
  • Even if assigned to your second or third choice school a family must register at the assigned school in order to remain in the wait pool for their first choice school.
  • Student assignment will be based upon the following criteria - preference zone, full time site-based employee, sibling placement, socioeconomic diversity, family preference, and capacity.

Take the school assignment email to the assigned school and register.

  • School is responsible for checking all required registration documentation and verifying residency.
  • All school assignments have a registration deadline.
  • If the parents/guardians do not register their child by the stated deadline, they will be required to submit a new region school application.

Wait Pool Management:

  • Families assigned to their second or third choice school will remain in a wait pool for their first choice school.
  • Wait pools are only maintained for first choice schools.
  • Parents/Guardians must register their child at the assigned school in order to remain in the wait pool for their first choice school.
  • Once the school year begins, a student must be in attendance at the assigned school in order to remain in the wait pool for their first choice school.
  • On time applicants are placed prior to late applicants, as practicable.
  • Wait pools are maintained for one school year.
  • Families must reapply, beginning in January, to be eligible for a new school assignment the following year.
  • Families that are satisfied with their school assignment do not need to reapply in subsequent years.
