Enrollment for the 2022-23 School Year

  • SPS is adjusting attendance boundaries to support lower class sizes, the addition of three new middle schools, and moving sixth graders into middle schools. The new boundaries go into effect on the north side of the district the fall of 2022, and the south side of the district the fall of 2023.

    Attendance Information 

    Which school will I attend? 


    What if I don't want to attend my assigned neighborhood school?

    SPS offers an array of school options so that families have the freedom to choose the school or program that is right for their child. For most SPS families, the best fit will likely be their neighborhood school. Others may prefer one with a certain focus or different way of learning.  

    ⇒ Request to attend a school other than your neighborhood school or an Option school/program Jan. 3-Feb. 15. Use the Enrollment Portal to begin the process here.


    What if my boundary doesn’t change until fall 2023 but I want my child to get an early start at their new neighborhood school?

    You may submit an enrollment form to begin attending your new school starting fall of 2022, however, transportation for the new boundaries will not be supported until the beginning of the fall 2023 school year.

    Who Should Use the Enrollment Portal?

    • Choice Transfer: Students wishing to attend a school other than their assigned neighborhood school can apply to attend another SPS school of their choice, including SPS Option schools and programs. Please be advised that acceptance into your choice school for 2022 does not guarantee your student will be able to continue in the feeder pattern of their choice school in the future. You will need to submit a new enrollment form as your child transitions to middle or high school. Acceptance depends on available capacity for neighborhood students as outlined in board procedure 3131
      Request to attend a school other than your neighborhood school Jan. 3-Feb. 15.
    • Priority Choice: Students who will be assigned to a different neighborhood elementary school, and also have a new middle & high school feeder pattern due to boundary changes, can request to stay at their current school and will be given priority in the choice transfer process. Acceptance depends on available capacity for neighborhood students as outlined in board procedure 3131.
      ⇒ Log in to the Enrollment Portal Jan. 3-Feb. 15 to let us know which school you'd like to attend.
    • Legacy: Students who will start grade 5, 8, or 10-12 in August 2022 can stay at their current school, if space is available, even if their attendance boundary has changed. Space availability for Legacy students will be determined in accordance with the board procedure 3131.
      ⇒ Log in to the Enrollment Portal Jan. 3-Feb. 15 to let us know which school you'd like to attend.
    • Extended Legacy: For a small group of students, the boundary change will mean a school assignment change, feeder pattern change and moving from a southside to northside school. Acceptance depends on available capacity as outlined in board procedure 3131.
      • Students currently in grades K-5 can request a one-year extension to remain at their current school.
      • Students currently in grade 6 can request to stay for two years, completing middle school in their current middle school feeder pattern, but will need to submit a new enrollment form for the fall of 2024 if not planning to attend their neighborhood high school.
