Controlled Open Enrollment for the 2018 - 2019 school year

The Controlled Open Enrollment application window for the 2018-19 school year begins January 16 and runs through February 15.  During this time, parents may submit an online application for their student to attend a school outside of their attendance zone as long as it has available seats. 

If you would like to learn more or to submit an online application, visit the district's Controlled Open Enrollment page. 

Please note that if your student already has a seat in an out-of-zone school and plans to return to the same school next year you do not need to apply.  Your student is automatically approved to return to the same school next fall.

Transportation to and from school under Controlled Open Enrollment is the responsibility of the parent.


2018 - 2019 Registration

 

For 6th and 7th grade student families: Students were given a registration form and curriculum guide February 12th during science class. Please review these materials with your students. All forms need to be completed and returned to school in time for online registration next week on February 21st or 22nd during science class.

For 8th grade families: Students will have their individual appointments with Choctaw counselors on either February 20th or 21st.  Parents are encouraged to attend these meetings.

For questions or concerns about registration, please contact the guidance office. 


Book Fair - February 20th - 27th

 

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that provides the books kids want to read. It's a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Please make plans to come to our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits. Remember, all purchases benefit our school. See you at the Book Fair!
