    School Choice Inquiries and Appeals

    Disputes involving school choice are handled through Admissions inquiry process. The inquiry form is used for families to request that Admissions review their student’s School Choice form if there is a concern that it was not properly processed.

    The inquiry form is not used to dispute an assignment as a result of Open Enrollment - those disputes will be handled through the transfer appeal process starting June 1. Click this link to learn more about assignment inquiries and appeals.

    Please send all inquiry forms to .
