The hybrid of the choice plan/address-based plan kicks off today with the start of the new first transfer application period.
As noted in today's article, it carries over how in the choice plan you could request as many as five schools. But there are some big differences, like how you won't get transportation for most of the schools you request now.
You've got the people who will request a calendar-option school, with transportation provided.
Pre-choice plan you applied for year-round or traditional-calendar assignment the same time you applied for a magnet school.
Under the choice plan, your choices included your calendar options.
Now you apply during the first transfer period.
You've got people who, for whatever reason, didn't apply to their base school during the base declaration period. They can apply now in the transfer period too but with no guarantee.
You've got people trying to get the feeder-pattern middle o high school from the choice plan.
You've got people who want to request another school with no transportation provided. This includes the stay-where-you-start students who don't want to be reassigned to one of the three new schools.
