School Choice

Complete the 2019-2020 School Choice Application - Online here (available November 1, 2018 at 8a.m.)

All of Conejo Valley Unified Schools are considered Schools of Choice. As long as a school is not filled to its capacity with existing students and incoming neighborhood students, students living outside the neighborhood boundaries of a school may apply to enroll in that school. School of Choice schools may accept students until they are filled to capacity. If there are more applications than there are available spots for interested students, the District will conduct a random lottery to select the number of students the school is able to accept.

*Please note: School of Choice is only available to school-aged children living in the boundaries of the Conejo Valley Unified School District, children residing outside of CVUSD's boundaries may apply to attend a CVUSD school via the Inter-District Transfer process 

Any school-age child living in the boundaries of the Conejo Valley Unified School District may apply for School of Choice.

*Please note: You do not need to submit a School of Choice Application if you are planning to attend your neighborhood school.

To determine your assigned neighborhood school, please use our “Street Index” and “School Locator” map.

 SCHOOL CHOICE APPLICATIONS for the 2019-2020 school year will be available NOVEMBER 1, 2018.

School Choice Applications will be available to complete online here, beginning Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 8am. 

*Please Note: Upon approval of your School of Choice application, you forfeit your child’s space at your neighborhood school. If you cancel your application before the start of the school year and space is no longer available at your neighborhood school, you will remain assigned to your school of choice until space is available at your neighborhood school.

*No transportation is provided for school choice applicants
