Interdistrict Public School Choice

Forms and Templates

Student Application Process for Enrollment:

Several forms and templates are available in Spanish so districts can provide both English and Spanish language information for Spanish speaking families.

  • District Choice Program Profile (English language template and Spanish language template) Districts complete this template to advertise their available seats by grade level. Districts may list all available seats for which they will accept applications and then, via the lottery, determine the exact number of seats that will be filled by grade-level. Alternatively, districts may list the exact number of seats by grade-level that they plan to fill and conduct their lottery accordingly. The distribution of choice seats across approved grade levels and programs is entirely up to the district.

District Application for Amendment of Interdistrict Public School Choice Program:

Choice districts may submit a District Application for Amendment of Interdistrict Public School Choice Program if they would like to amend:

  • the grade levels that choice students may attend or
  • the selection criteria for an existing specialized program that choice students attend.

Any approved amendments will not impact the number of choice seats the Department will approve for the district.
