School of Choice Applications Open Through March 15

School of Choice Applications Open Through March 15 for 2022–2023 School Year
Posted on 02/02/2022
Shandin Hills Middle School is one of the many SBCUSD Schools of Choice for the 2022–2023 school year.

San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) believes that all families should have choices and input when it comes to their children’s education. To that end, SBCUSD offers several Signature Programs, middle school lottery programs, and School of Choice options.

If your child is currently enrolled at an SBCUSD school, you can apply now for a change of school for the 2022–2023 school year. The deadline to apply is March 15, 2022.

“School staffing is based on student attendance, which is usually based on the number of children living in a school’s attendance area,” Leonard Buckner, director of Enrollment & Placement Services, said. “However, if students apply early for a change of school, we may be able to alter our staffing, to the extent possible, to accommodate parents’ requests.”

Families are not able to request a transfer to Chavez Middle School, Richardson PREP HI Middle School, or Rodriguez Prep Academy Middle School since all three schools are part of the middle school lottery system. Paakuma’ K–8 School does not have space to accommodate any additional students. Middle College High School has a unique application process. Most other SBCUSD schools are available as a School of Choice option.
