November 2 is Set as First Day of Enrollment for New 2024-25 RCSD Students

Do you have a child who will be new to Redwood City School District (RCSD) starting in August of 2024-25? Or is your child currently enrolled in the District, but wishing to explore another program?

Mark your calendar! The priority window opens Thursday, November 2, 2023 and closes Friday, January 19, 2024. 

What is the Priority Window?

Because placement into a specific program or school is determined based on seat availability, applying during the priority window increases the possibility that a family will be placed in the program or school of their choice. The later the family applies, the less likely seats will be available.

In addition, students who apply during the late spring and summer, which is considered late enrollment, are only temporarily enrolled in their neighborhood school for the first 10 days of the school year, and may be moved if it is determined that there are not enough seats available.

While students can enroll for most schools at any time during the school year, applying during the priority window with all required documents submitted, is highly encouraged as it increases the possibility for placement.

All RCSD families with new applicants are encouraged to follow the 2024-25 timeline for additional details, key dates, and deadlines.
