Admissions News and Events

School Choice for 2017-18

School choice forms are available on the School Choice and Forms webpages until Aug. 31. Forms received after Open Enrollment (after Feb. 24) are late, do not receive priority tiebreakers, and are much less likely to result in your student being assigned to the school (or program) of your choice. The results of Open Enrollment will be available in mid-April.

Registration for 2017-18

New student admission forms are available online and in-person at the JSCEE Admission Center. Once registered, your child will receive an initial assignment to their attendance area school. To apply for option schools and/or other attendance area schools, you must submit a school choice form.
