Open Enrollment is closed for the 2017 -18 school as of February 3, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Open Enrollment applications are no longer being accepted.
For those families who submitted an Open Enrollment Transfer Application, there will be a random drawing to assign numbers for each site's potential wait list.
The drawing will be held at the Sequoia Union High School District office at 480 James Avenue in Redwood City. The drawing will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 7.
This drawing only assigns wait list numbers. There will be no announcement at the drawing of whether a student will be accepted to a particular school as the number of open seats at each site has not yet been calculated.

**************PLEASE READ THIS INFORMATION CAREFULLY******************
New changes to 9th Grade Open Enrollment were approved by the Board of Trustees effective for the 2016-17 school year.
The following regulations apply to 9th Grade Open Enrollment. Those in italics are new changes.
1. How does the district determine which high school my student is assigned to?
The district determines which high school your student attends based on your home address. Address verification must be completed at the district office. See ADDRESS VERIFICATION for further details.
2. What if the school assigned is not my preferred school?
Families can complete the Open Enrollment application on this page. Approvals are lottery-based and not guaranteed. This applies to incoming 9th grade students only.
3. Do I have to submit an Open Enrollment transfer if I want my student to attend his/her assigned school?
4. Can my student return to his/her originally assigned school if the new school does not work out?
No. Once the transfer request is approved, you may not rescind or transfer.
5. Does my student qualify for sibling priority if they have a sibling who previously attended the school but has since graduated?
No. In order to qualify for the sibling priority, the student must have a sibling assigned to the school during the school year requested.
6. Can I appeal if my child does not get into our desired school through Open Enrollment?
No. There is no appeal process. If your student does not get into your desired school through the Open Enrollment process, he/she must attend his/her assigned school.
