Specialty Program Applications

Applications for Specialty Programs open November 1.

Students may apply to:

  • Attend a program at their base school
  • Transfer to a program at another school
  • Attend a CTE transport program for part of the day and attend all other classes and activities at their base school

If a program receives applications for more students than the program can accept or the school can house, then a lottery is held to select program participants. Under conditions of extreme overcrowding of a given school, a program may be open only to students within the school’s boundary and may be closed to all transfer students.

Instructions for the Specialty Program Online Application will be posted no later than October 15.
