All 20 public school districts within Kent ISD participate in the Kent County Superintendents Association Collaborative Schools of Choice Program. The program is coordinated by Kent ISD. The plan is open to all families within Kent ISD. All students are eligible, regardless of grade level, ethnic background or student ability. The only limit on movement between school districts is the space available in the desired district. The Schools of Choice Application Window for the 2023-2024 School Year is open until May 12, 2023.
The Kent ISD School of Choice plan is a lottery-oriented system, not a first-come, first-served one. All applications are accepted from the opening date through the deadline date at 4 p.m. An application will be available once the enrollment window opens. Only one application may be submitted and families who submit more than one may be disqualified from the entire process.
There is no advantage to submitting an application early, since all applications are considered at the end of the application period. If a district has more applications than openings, a random drawing will take place the week of May 17. If a district has slots remaining after the deadline, they can accept students until August 21. Please review the Plan and Brochure to learn about the plan, rules, and considerations for families.
