School Choice

What is School of Choice?

All 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 

Who can apply for School of Choice?
Any school-age child living in the boundaries of CVUSD may apply for School Choice. *Please note: You do not need to submit a School Choice Application if you are planning to attend your neighborhood school.
