Open Enrollment is a process to request a school other than your neighborhood school or to return to your neighborhood school following a transfer.  Families who reside in the San Juan Unified School District have the opportunity to enroll students in any of the district's schools providing space is available in the appropriate program.  Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.


The Open Enrollment Lottery is not determined on a first-come, first-served basis.  A computerized random lottery will determine which students are accepted into their choice school.  Open Enrollment Lottery results will be mailed to families the first week of February 2022.


There are two ways to apply for Open Enrollment:


1. Online - Visit
