The Open Choice program was established by legislation in 1997 to reduce racial, ethnic, and economic isolation and improve academic achievement among students. Through the Open Choice program, students living in urban areas have the opportunity to apply to attend school in participating suburban school districts when space is available. 
The application window for OPEN CHOICE is now open for the 2023-2024 school year.  Applications for the program will close on March 15.  Please click on the link that corresponds with the city in which the child resides below.  Be sure to fill out the application completely and hit SUBMIT when the application is complete.  In JUNE, you will ONLY be notified if your child has received an offer for a spot in the program.
