Families encouraged to apply to openings in PCS choice programs
The Late Application Period for the district’s choice programs is underway. Nearly 40 programs have remaining seats available for students. Parents of students entering grades K-12 are encouraged to apply to programs with availability, including the district’s five newest programs. If seats are currently not available for one of the district’s 70 choice programs, students can apply to be added to a program’s wait list. During the Late Application Period, geographic application area restrictions have been lifted for several programs with seat availability. This means students countywide can apply to these programs, as long as the program’s criteria are met. Be sure to visit www.pcsb.org/choice for a complete list of choice programs with seat availability, as well as programs with geographic restrictions.
