To accommodate school choice preferences without overcrowding classrooms, the district uses a capacity formula to determine available slots prior to a school's opening for the new year.

2016-2017  Out-of-Zone/Out-of-District/Out-of-State Applications for grades Kindergarten- 12th will be accepted beginning March 24th at the Enrollment Center located at 101 N Thornton Ave from 7:30-4:30.

Acceptance decisions will be announced April 29, 2016 for applications received between March 24 and April 15, 2016. For applications received between April 16 and May 15, 2016, admission decisions will be made in the second phase of the early admission process and will be announced on May 27, 2016. Applications received after May 15, 2016 may not be considered until late July. No OOZ/OOD applications in grades 1-12 will be considered without information from the school the student currently attends.
