The Board of School Trustees recently approved revisions to District Policy and Regulation 5112, Change of School Assignment. These revisions promote equity for students and efficiency of resources. These changes are effective for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year, including the replacement of the zone variance process with Change of School Assignment. Students currently attending school through a zone variance will be able to remain at their current school until the end of the 2021-2022 school year.
Schools with available space will be included in the District’s Change of School Assignment application process. The list of schools with available space will be posted on It’s Your Choice on Thursday, December 16, 2021. Families may apply through an online application process to a school with available space. If there are more applications than available space, the District will conduct a computerized, random lottery for student selection. The Change of School Assignment process will begin on December 16, 2021, through January 11, 2022, for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year.
Students who are attending a school within the following options will be allowed to remain at the school they are currently attending until the highest grade offered at the designated school is completed.
- Open Enrollment
- Select School Enrollment
- Students in Grade 4 during the 2021-2022 School Year on a Zone Variance
- Students in Grade 7 during the 2021-2022 School Year on a Zone Variance
- Students in Grade 9 through Grade 11 during the 2021-2022 School Year on a Zone Variance
Students who are not attending a school within the options listed above must either complete an application for a Change of School Assignment at a school with available space at It’s Your Choice beginning on December 16, 2021, or return to their assigned zoned school for the 2022-2023 school year. Families directly impacted will receive formal notification from the District with this information this week.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we work to improve our procedures in CCSD to ensure fair and equitable opportunities for all families.
