ABC UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
SCHOOLS of CHOICE
Schools of Choice is the annual open enrollment process when parents/guardians may apply to have their students attend a school other than the designated school in their attendance area within the ABC Unified School District. Schools of Choice is done via an online application beginning December 1st where students are selected based on a random, unbiased, lottery process. School of Choice results depend on many factors including pupil enrollment by school, grade level, schools of choice slots allotted, and the total number of applicants vs. openings.
The Schools of Choice program is governed by ABCUSD Board Policy and Administrative Regulation 5116.1 and California Education Code 35160.5.
For more information about Schools of Choice, please contact the school site or Child Welfare & Attendance Department at (562) 926-5566, Ext. 21104.
