Important Dates for Transfers and Special Programs (2023)

  • School Choice

    At the January 10, 2023 Board of Education meeting, the board voted to postpone School Choice for the 2023-2024 school year. There will be no schools of choice for next school year. Students who are currently assigned through School Choice will remain in their school assignment through the terminal grade. 

    When more information is available about School Choice, UCPS will share updates with employees and parents.

    If you have questions about additional transfer options, visit the Student Assignment page.
