Enrollment and Return Guidelines:

If a student is enrolled in a school outside their assigned attendance area and continued enrollment is desired, an Intradistrict/School Choice Form does not need to be completed each year.听 Once enrolled in a school outside their assigned attendance area, students and their siblings receive priority at that school for continued enrollment over all other Intradistrict/School Choice applicants.听 If for any reason, the school is unable to permit continued enrollment, the principal will notify the student鈥檚 parents/legal guardians.

Students who elect to begin a given academic year at a school other than their assigned school may not be able to transfer back to their assigned school for the balance of the same academic year due to restricted space availability. Transfers within the school year may disrupt student academic goals and progress.听 Students who elect to return to their assigned attendance area school, may request to do so during the school year, however:

  1. Middle school students may only transfer at the beginning of a trimester.
  2. High school students may only transfer at the beginning of a semester.
  3. Year-Round students may not transfer to a traditional school.

Sibling Rule

Siblings of students on an approved Intradistrict/School Choice transfer will not automatically be enrolled at the school their sibling attends. An Intradistrict/School Choice request must be submitted during the lottery window or waitlist window to the desired school. Students with a concurrently enrolled sibling are given priority to the requested school.听

All policies and attendance areas are subject to change by the Board of Education of the 澳门开奖网.
