If you are applying for school for the 2021-22 school year, the School Choice Application deadline is Friday, April 2, 2021. Students who do not participate in the School Choice Lottery will be placed in a school closest to your home where space is available after the selection process is complete.
Families of students registering for Pre-K or Elementary can do so by calling a placement specialist. Our staff is ready to assist you with the registration process by phone, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Registration packets, applications, school compacts, and other documentation is available for pick-up at 131 W. Broad Street but the Student Equity and Placement office is currently closed for in-person support due to COVID-19.
To enroll a child for school, please view our guide below that contains a list of acceptable documentation you'll need to register your child for school with the Office of Student Equity and Placement:
You will need to fill out 6 registration-related forms that are now combined into one fillable form packet. You may want to print out this fillable form packet in your primary language and fill them out at home to save time during registration. If you do, please bring or send your completed forms when you register your child for school.
If you are participating in a Schools of Choice process, such as for entering Kindergarten, you will be asked to fill out an additional form identifying your top choices. Some of the forms only ask you to fill out one or two lines and provide a signature. If any of the forms seem to be difficult or confusing, we will be happy to assist you.
