Open Enrollment

It’s Open Enrollment time! Open Enrollment (OE) is the procedure to apply for a high school other than the student’s school of residence. Applications for the new 2022-23 school year will be mailed to each student in February, and the application is also available on the District website (https://www.avdistrict.org/parents/open-enrollment). The deadline to receive 2022-23 OE applications in the Student Services office is Friday, March 11, 2022. Applications may be emailed to studentservices@avhsd.org or faxed to 661-949-6292 or mailed to AVUHSD Student Services, 548 W Lancaster Blvd, Lancaster, CA 93534.

There will be a limited number of OE spaces available at all schools as well as some OE spaces specific to particular academies. Students interested in academies/programs must also submit a separate academy/program application through the Academy/Program Coordinator at the requested school. If more applications are received than available spaces, there will be a random selection lottery. Response letters for approvals and waiting list results will be mailed around the end of April. When it comes time to register in March, please complete the PowerSchool Enrollment for your student through the school of residence. If approved to the Open Enrollment school, staff will then transfer your student’s data to the approved school later as part of the registration process.
