2020-2021 online high school selection opens THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2020 at 8:00 AM and closes on MONDAY, MARCH 2, 2020 at 4:00 PM.
Students currently attending SDUHSD schools
All current grade 8 students who will attend grade 9 in the district must submit an online selection of the high school that they wish to attend in fall 2020 and follow all required procedures or select “Not Returning” to facilitate work with the school registrar for records transfer to a new school.
Only grade 9-11 high school students who currently attend a SDUHSD high school and wish to CHANGE HIGH SCHOOLS need to select the new high school that they want to attend in fall 2020. Current SDUHSD high school students who will stay at their same school do not need to make a selection and will automatically be re-enrolled in the current high school for next year.
Note: Students must currently reside within SDUHSD district boundaries to participate in high school selection. Students who are currently on an approved Interdistrict transfer cannot make a high school selection during this process. All current approved Interdistrict transfer students must reapply annually.
Students not currently attending SDUHSD schools
All current grade 8 students, including those attending private schools, home schools and R Roger Rowe Middle School in Rancho Santa Fe, who will be attending grade 9 in SDUHSD must submit an online selection of the high school that they wish to attend in fall 2020
Any grade 9-11 high school student who currently resides within the district boundaries but is not currently attending a SDUHSD high school will need to select the high school that they request to attend in fall 2020
There is no advantage to submitting earlier in the high school selection window. All applications submitted on or before 4:00 pm on the last date of the window each year have an equal chance.
No selections or submissions will be accepted after the March 2, 2020, 4:00 PM deadline and no changes will be made to selections after the deadline. There will be no exceptions to the board policies that govern high school selection.
