• San Juan Unified Enrollment

  • What is the Open Enrollment Lottery? 

     
    The Open Enrollment Lottery is an annual process that allows families who live within the boundaries of San Juan Unified School District an opportunity to request a school of their choice other than their resident school. Families who reside in the San Juan Unified School District have the opportunity to enroll students in any of the district's school providing there is space available at the requested school and families are willing to provide transportation. 

     *Available space is determined by defined physical and program capacity of the school after placement of enrolled resident students.

     

    When is the Open Enrollment Lottery application available?

    The Open Enrollment Lottery application will be available starting on Monday, December 6, 2021, at 8 a.m through January 21, 2022, at 5 p.m. 

    Parents will be notified by letter of the Open Enrollment Lottery results during the first week of February 2022. 

    Please be aware that the Open Enrollment Lottery is not determined on a first come, first served basis. A computerized randon lottery process will determine which students are accepted into their Open Enrollment choice school. 
     
    Parents must submit a separate request for each student they wish to apply for a school of their choice through the Open Enrollment Lottery. Parents may only select ONE SCHOOL on their Open Enrollment Lottery application.
