How to Request a School

Step 1: Find out which schools are available to you with transportation. Enter your address to see a list of options with busing available.

Step 2: Research schools. By learning basic information about school start times, locations and program offerings, you will be able to narrow down your school choice options.

Step 3: Visit schools you are interested in to further narrow your school requests.

Step 4: Read Frequently Asked Questions. You may find the answers to the questions you have about the school request process.

Step 5: Determine school preferences to list on your School Request Form. It is strongly recommended that families select two schools and that one be the community school in your attendance area.

Step 6: Submit your request form online. If you are unable to submit a request form online please download, print, and mail in your request form to one of our student placement offices.

Step 7: Letters notifying families of their school placement will arrive in homes on April 11.

Step 8: If you have any questions, please call Student Placement Services at 612.668.1840. Student Placement Services staff are available to talk you through the request process. Families who speak a home language other than English should call the New Families Center at 612.668.3700:
