Enrollment News

  • Did you apply on-time (by Feb. 8, 2019) for the 2019-20 school year?

    • OUSD school offers and waitlist assignments were available starting on March 14, 2019.
    • The deadline to accept or decline your student's offer was Tuesday, April 2, 2019.
    • Starting April 3, 2019, waitlist assignments for families that did not accept or decline an offer were also cancelled. This is done to clear space for students who are on waitlists and who have indicated in the last three weeks that they are still interested in attending an OUSD school.
