Massachusetts school choice report: 2022-2023 school year

The inter-district school choice law (G.L. c.76, s.12B) requires all districts to accept incoming school choice students unless the school committee votes not to participate or votes to limit the number of incoming students in particular grades. The required school committee vote must be taken annually, prior to June 1.

All districts must report their school choice participation plans to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education using this survey by June 1, 2022. This information will be published on the Department's website to inform families of their school choice options.

Please note that if we do not receive your response, your district will be listed as open to school choice enrollment.
