District of Choice - Living outside the school's area?

Round Valley Joint Elementary School District (RVJESD), continues to be a School District of Choice. A limited number of students are accepted each year from outside of the school’s home district through a public lottery process at a designated School Board Meeting. Only students from non-Basic Aid funded schools will be considered for transfer.

The application process is closed for the 2023-2024 school year. 

If you are interested in an opportunity for your student to attend Round Valley School for the school year 2024-2025, you must complete the Inter District Enrollment Application. The application must be received in the school’s office between October 2, 2023 and 12:00 PM on  December 21, 2023, no exceptions.

As required of a School District of Choice, RVJESD will give first priority for attendance to siblings of School District of Choice children already in the district, and give second priority to students eligible for free or reduced meals, and third priority to active military families.

At the January 17, 2024 School board meeting a resolution (please see previous year’s resolution attached), will be adopted regarding the maximum number of students per grade that that will be accepted by the School/District. The School Board will then hold the lottery drawing with applications received for consideration.

Families will be notified in writing by February 15, 2024, whether their student’s application has been provisionally accepted, rejected or if the pupil is placed on a waiting list. No students may be accepted from the waiting list after May 1, 2024.
