1. The Parent or Guardian must have the Student’s 7-digit Permanent Student ID to submit an application for School of Choice. If your child will be new to CUSD in 2017-2018, you must first enroll and submit the supporting documentation to your School of Residency, and complete the enrollment process. Once the enrollment process is complete, the school will provide the Parent or Guardian with the Student’s 7-digit ID upon completion.

2. Lottery- A random, unbiased lottery will be conducted for each priority area when there are more applicants than spaces available at a particular school.

3. All applicants will be notified by mail or email as to the final status of their application.

  • I have read and understand the guidelines which govern Board Policy 5119: School of Choice.
  • I understand that I am making a commitment for my child to attend the School of Choice listed on their application and the commitment is for the entire 2017-18 school year. Once placed your child may not rescind their SOC to return to their home school and will need to reapply for School of Choice for the opportunity to return to their residential school.

  • I understand that Home-to-School Transportation is the responsibility of the Parent or Guardian.

The initial School of Choice agreement is in effect for the duration of a child’s years at the requested school as long as you reside within the CUSD attendance boundaries. You do not need to reapply annually.
  • I understand that if this student is approved to the requested school, it DOES NOT guarantee approval for siblings in the future.
