Attention Parents/Families of current 8th grade students,
For many years the Vail School District has offered the opportunity for you to choose your child’s high school. This year, we are excited to announce, the high school choice process has been upgraded.
For the first time, Vail will be providing online submission student interest forms, rather than only in person. Additionally, this year all students will be asked to submit their school choice regardless of which school they want to attend next year. Students will be asked to rank their school choices in order of preference. These changes were made to provide convenience to parents and to prioritize each family’s first choice of school.
Please attend one of the information house nights in January followed by the high school open houses. Information regarding these events is attached below.
The school choice portal, VailHighSchoolChoice.org, will be open for submissions in mid-January and school choice rankings will be due March 1st. In the event that a school has more interest than spaces available that school may hold a lottery which would be on March 8th. Further information regarding the high school choice process will be mailed and sent electronically in early January.
