DeKalb County School District opens enrollment period for School Choice programs
The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) has opened its enrollment period for next year’s School Choice programs, according to a DCSD press release.
The window for open enrollment for DCSD’s School Choice programs for the 2020-2021 school year opened recently, and it will close on Friday, Feb. 7, at 4 p.m. for on-time applications.
During that time, district families can apply for DCSD’s many diverse education programs, such as the dual immersion language programs and distinguished magnet programs for the 2020-2021 school year, the release said. School programs are available at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
