UCPS School Choice

  • Union County Public Schools has announced school choice options for the 2024-2025 school year. Families may apply through lottery to the schools of choice listed below.

    The application period is Dec. 11, 2023, to Feb. 11, 2024. To apply, parents should find the School Choice Lottery section within Scribbles (all applications should be completed through the Scribbles portal).

    School Choice is explained under Policy 4-13 Student Assignment. Through this option, families may apply for admission through lottery to any elementary, middle or high school within the district whose student population is less than 85% of the capacity as determined by the district.

    The Superintendent shall designate which schools are available for enrollment under this provision on an annual basis. The Superintendent and Board of Education have the final authority to identify schools available for choice under this option. Once a transfer has been granted under this basis, it will remain in effect until the terminal grade in that school location (i.e. 5th, 8th and 12th).

    Transportation is not provided for students who accept a transfer through School Choice.

    If you have questions, please contact Dr. Stacey Barber in the Student Assignment Office.
