School Options and Choice

The 2023-24 school choice application period is now closed. Applications are no longer being accepted. 


School Choice

PSD's School Choice program allows families to select the school that best meets their child's educational needs based on space availability and eligibility requirements. A school choice application is required to attend a school that is not a student’s neighborhood school or to attend a choice only school.

PSD offers diverse schools and programs 

Neighborhood schools offer a rigorous standards-driven curriculum, and gifted, enrichment, and accelerated options. Other schools may have a specific curriculum or focus like International Baccalaureate, Core Knowledge, hands-on learning, dual-language immersion and online learning (see the left-hand menu for more information about options). 

School Choice applications for the 2024-25 school year

  • The first-round application period is anticipated to open Wednesday, Nov. 1. More information will be posted when available. 
  • The second-round application period opening date and time is still to be determined.

School transfers

Once a school year begins, open enrollment (school choice) for that school year is over. Applying to attend another school is considered a transfer and must be approved by either the assistant superintendent of elementary or secondary schools.

Those who would like their student to transfer should submit a School Transfer Request form (Español - School Transfer Request form).
