Open Enrollment - Choice of Schools Information

  •  2018-2019 School District 27J Open Enrollment - Choice of Schools


    The 2018 Open Enrollment – Choice of Schools application period ended February 9th, 2018.  If your student would like to attend a school other than his/her boundary school, and you did not submit an application during the application period, you may contact that school to see if there is space available for additional applicants.

    School District 27J allows any student to apply to attend any SD27J school/program on a space/program available basis.

    If a family wishes to enroll a student in his/her boundary area school (by primary address), there is no need to complete the Application for Open Enrollment - Choice of Schools. Simply contact the office at the school you would like for your student to attend. You may click on the Find Your Child's 2018-2019 School or School Boundary Area Maps links to find your boundary area schools. Note that the middle and high school boundary areas have been revised for the 2018-2019 school year with the addition of Riverdale Ridge High School and Rodger Quist Middle School (to be housed in Riverdale Ridge High School until fall 2020). The elementary school boundary areas have not changed.

    An Application for Open Enrollment - Choice of Schools must be submitted even if your student is currently open enrolled at his/her school of choice. If your student has reached the top grade in the school (elementary or middle school) and is currently open enrolled, an application must be submitted if the student wishes to attend a middle or high school other than his/her boundary area school.

    Students who live in the RRHS and RQMS boundary areas and will be in grades 6-10 will automatically be enrolled into those schools unless they are currently enrolled in 6th, 7th, or 9th grade at a charter school or are currently attending Brighton Heritage Academy or BOLT Academy.
