Secondary Options & Transfers Application Data School Year 2019-20

Secondary Option School Application Information for School Year 2018-19

On Friday, January 18, the APS Secondary Option Schools Application closed for families. On Tuesday, January 29, the APS Welcome Center facilitated the lottery for each of the option schools/programs and neighborhood transfers. Families were notified via email and/or text message of their status on Tuesday, February 5. Parents must confirm or decline attendance to the school(s) or program(s) to which their students have been accepted no later than February 22, 2019. Students who applied, but were not selected through the lottery process, will be placed in numerical order on a waitlist. Applications received after the deadline are placed at the bottom of the existing waiting list for the upcoming school year. Neighborhood transfer waitlists will be maintained by the APS Welcome Center until May 1, 2019. Options seats are continuously filled throughout the school year as seats become available. Families will be notified if they are on the waitlist and a seat becomes available. Additional information is available on the How to Apply page.

Seats Offered: number of seats available at each school and/or program based on the Superintendent’s Annual Update to the School Board on enrollment and projections.

Number of Applicants: number of students who applied to each program within the application window (November 5, 2018- January 18, 2019). The same student is included more than once if the family applied to more than one option and/or program.

Students on Waitlists: includes all students waitlisted as of February 19, 2019. Please note that waitlists continually update as families accept seats, are withdrawn from all other waitlists, or if a family cancels their application after they were waitlisted. In addition, waitlist numbers will be updated in the online application portal as seats are offered to new students.

The following are the application numbers for the 2018-19 school year:
