SCHOOL OF CHOICE:
Beginning Monday, March 2, 2015, students in Capistrano Unified School District can apply for School of Choice. The School of Choice window will close March 27, 2015. Applications will not be accepted after March 27, 2015. The School of Choice process provides parents with the ability to apply to a school outside of their child’s attendance area on a space-available basis. The list of schools open to School of Choice will be provided in January.
Detailed information describing each school and its academic offerings is available online. Applications will be available online at www.capousd.org. Notifications will be sent to families beginning May 4, 2015.
Parents of high school student athletes are urged to learn more about California Interscholastic Federation sports eligibility requirements (http://cifss.org/) prior to pursuing the School of Choice process. Transportation to any school other than the home school is the responsibility of parents.
The District’s online programs, which include California Preparatory Academy, Capistrano Virtual School, and Capistrano Home School are not part of the School of Choice process and are accepting applications. Applications for the online programs are accepted at these sites.
