School choice transfers are approved through a process known as “permitting.” Starting, Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017, families can complete their application via their personal computer from the comfort of their homes. Schools also have computers available to assist families with the application process.
Applying is easy: Simply click here and follow the prompts.
Please note: If your student is already attending a non-boundary school on a permit, that permit is still active and you do not need to fill out another one. Rules governing eligibility for permits remain the same. All that’s changed is the process for applying for permits. The online permits will be date- and time-stamped to ensure your place in the first-come, first-served permitting process.
To guide families through the process, the Department of Planning and Enrollment has created a tutorial found here. Answers to frequently asked questions can be found on the Department’s website. The Main Office at your local school also is a good resource for information.
