    About Assignment

    As a general rule, your student is assigned to the same school for next year as they are attending now. Students who are moving up to middle or high school will be automatically assigned to their neighborhood school. For more information about student assignment, please visit our Student Assignment web page.

    About Waitlists

    Waitlists are formed when there is no space available at a school and grade, in a specific program. The waitlist positions are based on applicable tiebreakers. Adjustments to waitlist rank order may be necessary due to program changes, agent, or system error. Please contact Admissions with inquiries. The District cannot guarantee a choice assignment, that space may become available, or that the waitlist will move. Waitlists for the 2018-19 school year were dissolved on August 31, 2018.
