The window to submit a School Choice application is from Jan 23 - Feb 24, 2017 by 4:00 PM. School Choice Enrollment is a family's option to request that their student attend a different school than that within their designated attendance area.

Which school will my student attend?
The Grossmont District assigns students to a high school based on their residence address, using established boundaries
However, the district also offers a School Choice opportunity each spring, where you may request enrollment at another school, as long as there is sufficient space available.  Please be aware that students granted a transfer are not provided with District transportation.  

School Choice
Any family may request a different school for their child other than the one within their designated attendance area. If space is available, students are allowed to attend their school of choice. If the desired school's enrollment is impacted or demand exceeds space available, choice requests are entered into a lottery and spaces filled by random selection.
