Attending a school outside of your area of attendance:
An Out-of-Attendance Area (OAA) application is required whenever a parent wishes their student to attend a regular enrollment district school that is not in their home transportation area.
Visit Find Your Neighborhood School (above) to determine the area schools for your home address.
All families may apply for Out-of-Attendance Area admission through the Centralized Application Portal (CAP) OAA Lottery and will be admitted as seats are available. Meanwhile, families should register their children at their neighborhood school.
Several district schools have strictly lottery-based enrollment: there is no OAA enrollment at these schools.
