January 10 Magnet School Application Deadline- mailed to School Assign.
Mid-January: HS and MS Assignment Letters
Students will bring home a letter showing his or her school assignment for next year and explaining how to apply for a Choice transfer to a different high school or Middle School.
January 27 - February 7:
If you would like your child to attend another high school, apply now for a Choice transfer. If there is space available and you will provide your own transportation, we will try to give you a spot. If space is limited, students will be assigned in the order that their choice applications were received.
**You must print out the application, sign and then have it notarized and then MAIL it to School Assignment**
You'll receive your assignment by mail around Mid-February.
- One exception: If your child was accepted into a magnet school and you want your child to attend that school, you should not complete a choice card; it will override your magnet assignment.
