Will any students automatically receive their first high school choice?

Posted by:

Yes. Some students will have guaranteed placement at a school based on their specific educational or situational needs. These situations include:

    • siblings who will both be attending the same school
    • students with disabilities in self-contained classrooms
    • students in the Newcomers program (English learners who have received less than one year of instruction in U.S. schools)
    • students identified as McKinney-Vento (a student who qualifies for homeless assistance services
    • students in foster care
    • students whose parent is a full-time employee at that school
