Bridgeport Open Choice

Applications are open Jan. 15 through March 15 for the upcoming school year. 
 
The Bridgeport region has participated in Open Choice for more than 20 years. Each year, hundreds of Bridgeport students attend school in neighboring districts such as Easton, Fairfield, Trumbull, Weston, and Westport.  Students are picked up near their home and transported by bus to their new school district.  
 
  • In 2021-22, the program served 296 students.  An average of 800 families apply each year for new spots available.  
  • Transportation is coordinated by Karen Barnes at CES and buses are provided by Dattco.  
  • Applications for 2022-23 will be open Jan. 15 through March 15, 2022.  Only families accepted through the blind lottery will be notified of placement.
