School Choice Application Ranking for the 2020-2021 School Year

  • The 2020-2021 School Choice application process requires families to rank applications in order of preference. Parents may apply to a combination of 10 School Choice transfers with no more than 5 being Magnet programs.

    The first application you complete will automatically become your rank 1 school by system default. The second application you complete will become your 2nd ranked choice and so forth. Families will need to place schools in order of preference by placing “1” next to the most desired program, “2” next to the second highest ranked choice, and so on.

    Applicants have until midnight on December 6, 2019 to re-arrange school rankings. The order schools are ranked have absolutely no impact on the lottery. All students will enter the lottery pool for the schools in which they have both applied and qualified. It is very important that you think carefully about your ranking, because if your child is accepted to a program, any lower-ranked choice will be removed, see examples below.
