The School Choice Application period for the 2017-18 school year opens on Oct. 3, 2016 and will close on Nov. 14, 2016. This is a change from prior years in order to align the district’s application window with neighboring school districts, and thus simplify the placement process for schools and families.

San Diego Unified offers excellent educational opportunities around every corner, and visiting your neighborhood school is a great place to start. However, students who want to attend a school other than their neighborhood school should submit a School Choice Application.

The process is not first come, first served, so there is no urgency to be the first to apply. All applications received by the Nov. 14 deadline are processed through a randomized computer lottery, using a priority structure to weigh factors such as magnet program continuity and sibling enrollment.

Applications will not be accepted after the deadline unless the student is new to the district or a current San Diego Unified student has a change of residence.

Students who were enrolled into their school of choice last year do not need to reapply to remain at that school unless they moved outside of the school district.

Please forward this information to anyone you know that might be interested in applying. This school year, McKinley had a very limited number of School Choice spots available to incoming kindergartners.  Visit SDUSD’s site for more information and ver flyer para Español.
