Things to Know Before You Make a School Choice Request

  • GUHSD cannot provide transportation for School Choice families. 
  • Sibling transfer eligible families: You must register your student and submit a school choice request prior to the close of the School Choice window.
  • When making a school choice request, you may select a first choice option as well as second, third, and fourth choice alternatives:
    • Every effort is made to place as many students as possible into the first choice requests.  When that cannot be accomodated, we will try to accommodate 2nd, third, and fourth choice requests. If none of the requests can be accommodated, your student will be placed in their school of residence.
    • If your school of residence is your first choice, you do not need to submit a school choice request. 
  • Sometimes a school will not have space to accommodate all requests.  When that happens, students are selected for that school based on a random lottery of all students whose families submitted requests for that school during the School Choice window. 
  • If your student is granted your first or second choice request, it will automatically be accepted for you, and your student will be transferred to that school.  If your student is granted your third or fourth choice, you must accept that school via your Parent Portal before the deadline (TBD).
