Waitlist information

Waitlist Update

The District has begun moving waitlists at Options Schools where seats are available and at attendance area schools that have space within their allocated staffing. Waitlists will remain active until August 31 after which they will be dissolved. Please ensure that your contact information for the summer is up to date.

Additionally, there will be a Board work session on waitlists on June 28 to discuss the waitlist process further. Thank you for your patience as we consider the needs of all our students, schools and programs as a result of waitlist moves.

Waitlists at attendance area schools will not move until district staff review updated spring staffing allocations in mid-June. Waitlist moves at option schools will continue through August 31 based on current school staffing and available seats in classrooms. For more information, please see this page.
