We know that you have many choices in selecting the best education for your child and we thank you for considering PUSD.
While every child living within PUSD boundaries is guaranteed placement in their neighborhood school, a different campus might offer a specialized program or focus that better meets the interests and needs of the individual student.
PUSD’s annual winter Open Enrollment process offers families an opportunity to apply to attend a school other than their assigned neighborhood school in the next academic year.
The 2015-2016 Open Enrollment process begins with Priority Registration at schools—not the District Office—on November 10. Priority Registration ends December 5 at 12 p.m. General Open Enrollment gets underway with the acceptance of online applications January 8-29, 2015.
Priority registration is offered to brothers and sisters residing at the same address of students currently attending a PUSD school on a permit. To qualify, siblings must attend the same school together. If the family's school of residence will change next year but they would like for a brother/sister to attend the current school with their sibling, they must register at the school during Priority Registration.
Si la escuela de residencia de la familia va a cambiar el próximo año y le gustaría que un hermano(a) asistiera a la misma escuela con su hermano(a), deberían registrarse en la escuela durante Registros de Prioridad.
Willard students who do not live in Blair’s attendance area but wish to continue with the International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) in middle school pre-register directly at the Blair campus.
Pre-K students currently enrolled in a Dual Language Immersion Program (DLIP) may pre-register for Kindergarten at the school they are currently attending.
Fifth grade students in Field’s Dual Language Immersion Program-Mandarin Chinese who plan to continue in DLIP for middle school may pre-register at Sierra Madre Middle School. Transitioning San Rafael Dual Language Immersion Program-Spanish 5th graders continuing in DLIP may pre-register at Blair.
Please check the District’s school locator to become familiar with school boundary changes. New boundaries were approved at the October 23, 2014 Board of Education meeting. The new boundaries shift the geographic school boundaries of many PUSD schools but do not include any school closures. While these changes will take effect for the 2015-2016 school year, students will not have to change the school they are currently attending. Parents are also able to choose any school outside their attendance area with space available through Open Enrollment.
