R2 Choice Program: Expanded Choice and Magnets

Although our students are assigned to schools based on their residential address, they may apply to a magnet school, a school with a magnet program or another school within the district through the Expanded Choice program. This program offers parents and students residing in Richland District Two the opportunity to request permission to attend a school other than their residentially assigned school. Parents may apply electronically each January or May for placement that will take effect the following school year.
