Choice of School period extended

Giving families the unique opportunity to customize education, Garland ISD’s Choice of School program is like none other. Our families can attend any campus in the district, regardless of where they live. In an effort to ensure all families have ample time to consider and make their choices, as well as receive earlier notifications, we are extending this year’s Choice of School and magnet application window. Opening Dec. 9, see the full calendar below.

Complete Choice of School forms and magnet applications via Skyward Family Access. New students are also encouraged to enroll through Skyward during selection periods. For families with Pre-K and kindergarten students, the Choice of School and magnet application window opens March 20.

For details, visit the Choice of School page on the district website.
