Registering for Middle School
If you are planning to apply for your 2016-17 calendar option, you will want to participate in the "Calendar Application” process described on this page.
Know your options
Enter your address to view your calendar options. Calendar options are granted based on space availability and are not guaranteed. For some addresses, two calendar options are offered to allow a greater likelihood of available seats. For best results, parents should choose both options to improve their chances of getting seated in a school with their desired calendar.
Bus transportation is provided to calendar option students.
How to apply
Request a calendar change online Feb. 15-22. All requests for a calendar option assignment must be made during this period. No other opportunity will be provided to request your calendar option school. Notification of your application results will be posted to your online application account on March 1.
Applicants not seated will remain in an applicant pool and may be seated prior to March 20 if seats become available. (Numbered waitlists will no longer be used, as seat availability changes with each application selection.) Assignments made from the applicant pool will be posted to parent online accounts in the spring. Parents will receive an email letting them know when the applicant pools have been processed. No additional assignments to calendar option schools will be made after March 20, 2016. You can remove your student from the applicant pool if you no longer wish for your student to be considered for a seat. Login to your online application account to remove your student from the wait list.
Students who do not receive a calendar seat may not appeal the decision.
How students are selected
Selection is based on seat availability. Prioritized selection criteria are used to fill available seats. Students who are not selected may not appeal the decision.
Happy National School Counseling Week!
National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from Feb. 1–5, 2016, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.
