PRIORITIZATION INFORMATION

Students who want to attend outside their attendance-area school will be prioritized for enrollment using the categories below. When more students wish to attend a school than placements available, a lottery will be run.

The district average of students whose primary household language is other than English is 50%. For schools that do not meet this average, placements will be prioritized so that schools can mirror the demographics of the district as a whole. Additionally, students will be prioritized as follows:
