School Request Season Is Almost Here!


This is a time when students - especially new students or those making the transition to Kindergaten or Middle School - request a school for the 2021-2022 school year.

This year's school request window is open from DECEMBER 5, 2020 THROUGH FEBRUARY 7, 2021

Before December 5, 2020, the District will mail letters to families of currently enrolled students explaining the status of your current school for the 2021-2022 school year based on changes in the Comprehensive District Design (CDD). The information in that letter will help you decide if that school is still right for your student, or if you'll need to request a new school.
