School Enrollment

Open Enrollment/School Choice - Secondary (Middle/High Schools)

The District has adopted an open enrollment policy which provides the opportunity for parents/guardians and their students to apply to attend a high “school of choice” other than their school of residence during an annual open enrollment period. 

The open enrollment period will beJanuary 10 through January 31, 2012.  Applications must be received no later thanTuesday, January 31, 2012, at 3:30 p.m. to be included in the random selection process for the2012-2013 school year.  Open enrollment applications are available atyour middle school and must be submitted to your middle school.

Napa High and Vintage High Schools will have limited space available for open enrollment for grades 9 – 12 for Napa residents only.  New Technology High School does not have an attendance area.  All applicants to New Technology High School must apply through open enrollment.  American Canyon High School students may only open enroll to New Tech High School.  All other 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade American Canyon residents must attend American Canyon High School.  Napa residents may open enroll to American Canyon High School if space is available.  Transportation will not be provided.

Should requests for open enrollment exceed the number of openings at the available “schools of choice”, selection of open enrollment applicants will be made through a random unbiased lottery process conducted by the Napa Valley Unified School District.

If approved, an open enrolled student becomes a student of the “school of choice” through the 12th grade.  Once approved, the student does not have automatic rights to return to his/her original school of residence.  If the student desires to return to the original school of residence, the parent/guardian must reapply through the annual open enrollment process.

The District provides bus transportation only for students who reside beyond designated walking distances within established school attendance areas.  The parent/guardian of a successful open enrollment applicant must provide transportation to and from the “school of choice”.
