Please fill out the open enrollment form online between March 5, 2018 and March 16, 2018.  Schools will have computers available for your convenience.  Once you have filled out your form completely and submitted, Student and Community Services will receive your application.  You may request up to four schools on one application and may submit as many applications as you like.  Open Enrollment closes on March 16, 2018 at 4:00 P.M.  Student and Community Services will send applications to all schools requested.  School sites will hold a lottery and notify families of their lottery number.  Once the number of openings in a school is determined, the school will start making calls, starting with the first person on list and offer them a spot in their school.  Parents may accept or deny the offer.  If denied the school will move on to the next person on the list and parents may not change their mind, once they have denied.

Open Enrollment lotteries will be conducted by each school site.
