Last Year’s (2016-2017) Applicants and Placements & Projected Seats for School Year 2017-2018

These charts provide information to assist families in making informed choices based on last year’s School Year 2016-2017 (SY 16-17) data and projected available seats for School Year 2017-2018 (SY 17-18).

Why is the “Number of 1st & 2nd Choice Applicants” data useful? 

The majority of students placed in available seats last year had selected that school as their 1st or 2nd choice.

Why is the “Number of Students Placed” data useful? 

The “Number of Students Placed” provides information on how seats were filled last year, including the percentage of seats filled by applicants who had a preference (neighborhood and/or sibling).  

Why is the “Projected Seats” data useful? 

Although this number is subject to change due to enrollment changes (families entering/exiting the District, retentions, etc.), it provides information on available seats for the upcoming school year.
