DUSD open enrollment begins in February

DOWNEY - The Downey Unified School District is conducting its annual open enrollment next month for the 2014-15 school year.During open enrollment, Downey parents who live within district boundaries can enroll their children in a Downey school outside their attendance area. Applications are available at school offices and at the DUSD district office. New students (including kindergarteners) entering a Downey school for the first time should also register at their school of residence to guarantee admission in DUSD for the new school year. Open enrollment is Feb. 3-28. Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Feb. 28. Applications are not processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Instead, a random lottery is held to place students on their preferred school's waiting list for the 2014-15 school year. Schools may accept students from waiting lists according to priority, but only if space is available. For questions, call the Office of Student Services at (562) 469-6554.
