 Check Your Application Status  mckay_apply.png
If you are interested in an innovative program or magnet program at your child’s boundary school, you do not need to submit a School Choice Phase II application.  Instead, contact the school for information on how to participate. 

If you are interested in a program not available at your boundary school or if you would like your child to attend a school other than your boundary school, you may submit up to two applications for your child - a magnet program application and a reassignment application*.  Applications will be processed and granted based on the remaining available seats from School Choice Phase I (December 1, 2017 – February 7, 2018.

This year, Phase II is divided into multiple application periods, to provide families with quicker notifications regarding the status of their child’s application.  

The next opportunity to apply Is June 1, 2018 to June 8, 2018.

*If you are interested in an Innovative Program not at your boundary school, you may apply for entry to that school through a School Choice reassignment application.  

Families who applied during School Choice Phase I do not need to submit an application during School Choice Phase II, unless a magnet program or reassignment school change is desired. Waitpool applicants will be notified by August 28, 2018, if their child is awarded a seat. Applicants in a waitpool are not guaranteed a seat.
