DOWNEY – Open enrollment at the Downey Unified School District, also known as “school of choice,” opens this Monday. Downey parents with children who reside within DUSD boundaries but wish to attend a different school can apply to be placed on a waiting list for the 2015-16 school year.
A lottery will be held to determine which students are placed on the waiting lists. Schools may accept students from waiting lists according to priority, but only if space is available.
Applications are available at all Downey schools and also at the DUSD office on Brookshire Avenue. Applications are due Feb. 27.
New students (including kindergarteners) entering a Downey school for the first time, and wishing to attend a school outside their boundaries, should still register at their school of residence to guarantee registration for the new school year.
For questions, call the Office of Student Services at (562) 469-6550.
