Siblings and Preferential Placement
The Controlled Open Enrollment Application includes a section for the parent/guardian to indicate if they have submitted an application for other siblings to attend the same school. Placement of siblings within the same school is facilitated whenever feasible during the open enrollment period if appropriate educational services are available for each sibling at the requested school. There is no guarantee that sibling preference will be given.
Priority for school assignment pursuant to Controlled Open Enrollment is given based upon:
- Dependent children of active-duty military personnel whose move resulted in military orders;
- Children who have been relocated due to a foster care placement in a different school zone;
- Children who move due to a court-ordered change in custody due to separation or divorce, or the serious illness or death of a custodial parent;
- Students residing in the school district.
