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.

2017-2018 Out-of-Zone/Out-of-District/Out-of-State Applications for grades Kindergarten- 12th will be accepted beginning March 23rd at the Enrollment Center located at 101 N Thornton Ave from 7:30-4:30.

Applications received after May 12, 2017 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.
