April 18, 2023 – Controlled Open Enrollment (COE) is now open.
COE provides an opportunity for families to apply for any open seats available at schools following the standard lottery application window that was open from Jan. 1 – Feb. 28.
Unlike the on-time application window for magnet and special transfer option (STO) schools – which is run through a lottery system – the COE process places students in available seats on a first come, first served basis.
Families can visit the district’s Controlled Open Enrollment webpage where they will see a list that shows the available seats at each school. If there are no open seats, it will show a “0.” If families apply to schools/programs with no available seats, they will be added to the waitlist.
The applications are on the COE webpage and also linked below.
The COE window will be open from Monday, April 17 through Friday, Aug. 11, but families are encouraged to apply early.
Reminder – The COE and the on-time application processes are for families wishing to select a school for their child that is not in their attendance zone. There is no need for families to complete an application if they plan for their children to attend the attendance-area school.
