Enrollment/School Choice
Most elementary and middle school students will enroll at the school “zoned” for their address. The DOE also has special programs such as gifted and talented classes and charter schools. Consult the DOE website for enrollment procedures for zoned and special programs.

High schools are not zoned, and students may enroll at one of the Borough Enrollment Offices.

The rights and responsibilities of parents and students relating to enrollment are contained in Chancellor’s Regulation A-101.

Attendance/Enrollment Image The DOE has Special Populations Liaisons working with the enrollment offices, who are responsible for assisting with specific groups of students, including students in foster care and students returning from detention by the NYC Department of Juvenile Justice. The Special Populations Liaisons work with both general education and special education students, and should be contacted if difficulties are encountered enrolling a student in one of these groups. For the names of the Special Populations Liaisons, please contact the Borough Enrollment Office where the student resides.
