  • Students may apply to schools with multiple district eligibilities, borough-wide or city-wide programs

student offers
Student Offers
  • Offer letters from the Middle School Choice Process will be distributed in May.
  • Elementary Schools will be able to see to which schools their students received offers via SEMS.
  • At the middle school level, there are still a variety of forces at work. Therefore, an “offer” is not always the same as a “placement.”
  • Students may receive additional offers from:
    • Schools that run school-based processes
    • New Schools that have to run the later “New Schools” round
    • Charter School lotteries
  • There will continue to be an Appeals Process. It will conclude in June.
  • Placement Exception Requests (PERs) also still exist and may be issued over the summer and into the fall.

SEMS

  • Student Enrollment Management System (SEMS) is a web-based tool that is designed to support school staff and administration as they manage enrollment processes including the Middle School Choice Process.
