New Student Enrollment for the 2022-2023 School Year

En Español


Enrollment for transitional kindergarten through 12th grade for the 2022-2023 school year is now open and will be ongoing throughout the school year. 

We highly advise registering new students as soon as possible because enrollment is based on availability — space cannot be guaranteed at a specific school.

Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment allows families who reside within our district boundaries to request enrollment for their children at any school within our district if space is available. This includes our Spanish Dual Language Immersion Program at Scott Lane Elementary School, and our two open enrollment-only schools — Millikin Basics+ Elementary School and Washington Open Elementary School.

The first round of Open Enrollment for kindergarten through 12th grade will take place between 9 a.m. on January 10, 2022, and 4:30 p.m. on February 4, 2022. Prior to applying for Open Enrollment, you must register at your school of residence through our centralized Enrollment Center

New High School Opening Fall 2022

Kathleen MacDonald High is a new neighborhood school north of Highway 101 opening its doors to its inaugural class of students in the 2022-2023 school year. As with all of our schools, MacDonald High will also be an option for Open Enrollment, which means all students have the opportunity to apply to attend through the lottery-based application process. Learn more about MacDonald High on the MacDonald High School website.
