Understanding Student Assignment
Student Open Enrollment Process
- Parents rank schools available for their subzone of residence
- After enrollment period ends, each application is assigned a random number
- Each application is weighted based on preferences
- Lottery process begins
If you apply AFTER the first enrollment period and have preferences, they will only be beneficial if there are still seats available in that school.
Proximity Preferences* DO NOT help when ranking the proximity school second.
Parents do not have to rank a school with a preference as their first choice school.
*NOTE: See below for information on student assignment preferences.
Zones & Subzones
Each zone separated into three subzones:
- E-1, E-2, E-3
- S-1, S-2, S-3
