School Choice & Student Assignment

Students in the DeKalb County School District (DCSD) may apply to enroll at the school of their choice during open enrollment for the 2019-2020 School Choice program (begins on January 7, 2019, at 9 a.m. and closes on February 8, 2019, at 4 p.m).

During that time, district families can plan to attend one of DCSD’s many diverse charter schools, challenging dual immersion language programs, and distinguished magnet campuses during the 2019-2020 school year. Whether it’s at the elementary, middle, or high school level, each DCSD family has the opportunity to choose a school that suits its children’s academic needs.

Students currently enrolled in DeKalb County schools need their student ID number and a parent’s email address. New, private- or home-schooled students need a parent’s email, proof of residence, a birth certificate, a 2018 fall semester report card, a DCSD-issued affidavit of residence, and the student’s latest MAP test scores (for magnet programs only).

Parents with questions and in need of support can make an appointment at the Parent Support Center at 1192 Clarendon Ave, Avondale Estates, GA 30002, by calling 678-676-0050 or 678-676-0035.

During the open enrollment period, students can also apply online. The School Choice website provides a complete list of programs as well as a schedule of any upcoming tours.
