2022-2023 ELEMENTARY Schools of Choice Information

C-A Schools of Choice Elementary (K-5) Application

Applications and Behavior History are due by Wednesday, June 8.

Carman-Ainsworth Community School District is accepting applications for enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year for students who do not reside within the district’s boundaries.

There are limited openings for grades K-5. A separate application must be completed for each student. If the number of applications from nonresident students exceeds the number of available enrollment opportunities, enrollment priority shall be given to a sibling of a nonresident student already enrolled under this program. Nonresident students shall be selected for remaining vacancies using a lottery process.

Approvals and denials are determined on the basis of an in-school student behavior review; therefore, applications missing behavior reports from any portion of the 2019-20, 2020-21 or 2021-22 school years will be considered incomplete and will not be accepted until all missing documents are provided. All documentation must be submitted by the application deadline in order to be reviewed.

  • We have behavior for years/semesters students were enrolled in our district
  • For students with no behavior to report, please provide documentation signed by a school representative on district letterhead indicating “no behavior incidents” as well as dates of enrollment
  • No reports are required for years prior to Kindergarten

Carman-Ainsworth reserves the right to refuse acceptance of students who have been suspended within the past two years of physical attendance, expelled at any time, withdrew to avoid suspension or expulsion, or convicted of a felony.

Accepted Schools of Choice students are allowed continuous enrollment in Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools as nonresidents through graduation unless the student withdraws from C-A Schools or is expelled.

Transportation is NOT provided for Schools of Choice students. Parents must provide transportation to and from school.
