2014-2015 School Choice Lottery Highlights:
  • New choices for Vietnamese Immersion at Roseway Heights and Mandarin Immersion at King.
  • Use this application for Japanese Pre-K at Richmond. All other Pre-K applications will be available in the spring.
  • All immersion programs now have slots set aside for native-speakers.
  • Kindergarten transfers are for full-day programs, only. Some programs require tuition for students that do not qualify for free and reduced price meals. Click here for a list of Fee-for-Service programs and instructions.
  • Lincoln neighborhood students have guaranteed transfer to Benson, Jefferson Middle College, Madison, Roosevelt or Wilson. Lincoln is overcrowded, and voluntary transfers will help with space concerns at that school.
What's NOT included in the 2014-2015 School Choice Lottery:
  • Students who live outside of the PPS boundary cannot apply in this lottery, as it does not comply with new state laws for interdistrict transfers. A separate lottery for students from other districts will be held in the spring. Call 503-916-3205 to get more information about the interdistrict lottery.
  • Several schools and programs are closed to lottery transfers due to space or program limitations. If you feel you have an extraordinary situation that requires you to attend a program closed to lottery transfers, please call 503-916-3205 to obtain a hardship petition.
  • If you are an 8th grader living in the Jefferson cluster, you have a choice for designated high school—the high school you will attend if you do not transfer through the lottery. Click here to learn about your dual assignment options, and talk to your 8th grade counselor by February 21st to declare your dual assignment choice.
Have your student information ready before beginning your application:
  • If your student is already enrolled in a PPS school, we will ask for his/her student ID number and will use the address information in our student database when processing your application. If you moved recently and would like your information updated, please go to your school and provide two pieces of proof of your new address before the transfer deadline.
  • If you are applying for a sibling preference at your first choice school/program, please provide the student ID number of the student who is currently enrolled at that school.
  • Students who qualify for free-and-reduced-price meals may have an advantage with some lottery choices. Visit Nutrition Services for free-and-reduced-price meal information.
