Student Assignment Update on Choice Movement

Starting June 10, 2019, families who are interested in having their child(ren) attend another school, may request a move where space is available or request to have their child(ren) placed on an existing wait list. The Student Assignment Office is open from 8:30 – 1:30 p.m. to support families with requests. 

Families may add their child(ren) to an existing alternative or attendance area school waitlist.  Requests may not exceed two alternative schools and two attendance area schools.  If placed through the open enrollment process, the child’s name is removed from the other alternative school lists or attendance area school lists accordingly. 

•    Ex. 1:  A child is waiting to get into Faria and Portal. The family accepts a spot at Portal. The child’s name is removed from the Faria list.
•    Ex. 2: A child is waiting to get into Regnart and Muir.  The family accepts a spot at Muir.  The child’s name is removed from the Regnart list.
•    Ex. 3:  A child is waiting to get into Faria, Portal, Dilworth, and Muir. The family accepts a spot at Muir. The child is removed from the Dilworth list but will remain on the Faria and Portal lists.  If the family accepts an offer at Portal, then the child is removed from the Faria list.

Note:  If a student is withdrawn from CUSD for any reason, the school choice agreement will become void.

Attendance Area School:   Families that would like their child(ren) to return to the family’s attendance area school may make this request at any time. If there is space, we will work with the schools to support this transfer through a Request for Transfer. If there is no space, the student will be considered “overflow” and will be placed at his/her attendance area school before an open enrollment student when space becomes available.
