DOWNEY - Parents of students who wish to attend a Downey school outside their attendance area must turn in an application during the open enrollment period Feb. 1-29. Applications are not processed on a first-come basis. Instead, the Downey Unified School District holds a lottery to place students on a waiting list for their preferred school. Schools may accept students from the waiting lists according to priority, but only if space is available. New students (including kindergartners) entering a Downey school should register at their school of residence first to guarantee registration in the district for the new school year. Applications are available at all Downey schools and at the DUSD office located at 11627 Brookshire Ave. For more information, call the Office of Student Services at (562) 469-6554.
