Under the School Options open enrollment program, all entering kindergarten, middle and high school students must submit an application to attend a school in the fall, even if it’s the school in their neighborhood. The open enrollment period begins in December and usually ends in mid-January. Visit www.ousd.k12.ca.us/enroll to learn more about the Options process and enrolling for next school year.
