DeKalb’s School Choice Online Application will open at 9am on Jan 11, 2016 and will continue through Feb 19.
The district has implemented new software and has extended the enrollment period hoping to avoid a repeat of last year’s School Choice Registration – EPIC FAILURE.
Marlon Walker with the AJC is reporting, “Parents and district officials who tested the new software say the system is more user friendly, can be used on mobile devices and streamlines the process for the approximately 20,000 parents expected to register their children for about 4,000 spots in magnet schools and other accelerated programs.”
Gary Brantley, Chief Information Officer, said, “the program will email parents about any changes in their child’s status, including whether they are moved along in waiting lists and whether they are offered places in programs.”
