SCHOOL CHOICE/OPEN ENROLLMENT ACT

The School Choice Program provides students with the opportunity to attend a school other than their neighborhood school. Students may apply to any school within the district. No transportation is offered through the School Choice Program. Enrollment through the School Choice Program is on a space-available basis. Submitting an Enrollment Options Application for School Choice does not guarantee enrollment in the school.

The California Assembly passed legislation that requires the California State Superintendent of Public Instruction to annually create a list of 1,000 lower-performing public schools, based on a set of criteria outlined in the Open Enrollment Act (SBX5 4). This list of schools is called the Open Enrollment Act list. The legislation requires that no Local Education Agency (LEA) in the state, such as San Diego Unified, can have more than ten percent of its schools on the list. If your child's school is on this list, they will have priority enrollment for schools with higher API. This includes schools in and outside of the district. For more info, visit the California Department of Education.

Resident Students

Resident students do not apply for the School Choice. You may verify your school of residence by using the SDUSD online School Finder or by calling (619) 725-5672. If you move from the resident boundary of a school and would like your student to continue at that school, you must apply through the Open Enrollment Program. No special priority is given to students who were resident students in the past.

Continuity to Middle and High Schools

District students enrolled under the School Choice Program may continue to middle and high schools in the feeder pattern without having to reapply, as long as space is available. For more information, please see the Neighborhood Schools and Enrollment Options Enrollment Guide.

 


GATE (Gifted and Talented Education)

Elementary GATE Cluster Open Enrollment Program

Qualified GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Cluster elementary students whose resident school does not offer a cluster program may submit an Enrollment Options application. The application receives priority during the Enrollment Options Priority Application Period. Late applications are not accepted for this priority.

Seminar students may apply through School Choice to attend any school. There is no priority for seminar students and there is no guarantee that a seminar program may be available at the requested school.

Specialized Courses Not Offered at the Neighborhood Schools

The School Choice Program does give priority to students wanting a special course not offered at the neighborhood school. The request is handled on case-by-case basis. Students needing to enroll in a course that is not offered at the neighborhood high school may request a special exception to enroll in the course at another school. It must be submitted in writing with a Choice Enrollment Options application and must be received during the Choice Enrollment Options Priority Application Period. The following applies to requests for a specialized course:

The student may attend the school only while enrolled in the course.

  • The school must have available space on the course.
  • The request will not be granted at Magnet Schools

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


OPEN ENROLLMENT PRIORITIES

Continuity: School Choice students articulate with the School Choice school's resident students during regular articulation (no application required, except for out-of-district students).

  1. Elementary Gifted Cluster Program
  2. General School Choice request
  3. Out-of-district request
