Elementary School Choice Applications

What school zone do I live in?

  • Parents registering for Kindergarten need to know which school zone they live in to choose a school. There are citywide school offerings open to all families.  You can only apply for a school within your zone or a citywide offering. 
    The RCSD also uses School Finder, an online tool that allows a parent or guardian to enter their current street address and obtain a list of what schools are offered to them within their zone. | Visit School Finder now
    The online enrollment process also identifies what zone you reside in as part of the school selection process. If you need assistance, please contact the Office of Student Equity and Placement.
