C-A is accepting School of Choice applications for enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year for a limited number of students who do not reside within the district's boundaries. We have limited openings at Dillon (K-3rd grades), Dye (K-5th grades), Randels (K-5th grades), and Rankin (K-5th grades). There are unlimited openings in all grade levels at Carman-Ainsworth High School and Middle School. 100% online learning option available for all buildings. Students will not be charged tuition and do not need a release from their resident district if accepted for enrollment. A two-year behavior report is required with each application.

Transportation is the responsibility of parents.

Applications will be available both on the district website and at the Administration Building, G-3475 W. Court Street, beginning Wednesday, May 19. The deadline for K-5th grade application is Tuesday, June 15. The deadline for 6th-12th grade applications is Wednesday, August 18.
