Primary Selection Schools

General education students in kindergarten through 4th grade will be provided with four options for primary selection schools. Students will have guaranteed placement at any one of the primary selection schools. Those four schools designated as primary selection schools are Hidden Hills, Moulton, George White, and Wood Canyon.


Primary Selection School Tours in December

All primary selection schools will offer exclusive site visits for Crown Valley families during the first two weeks of December (11/30-12/11). Crown Valley families are encouraged to attend the tours and visit the primary selection schools in order to learn more about the programs and facilities of all four schools prior to making their selection.


Primary Selection Timeline

Primary selection requests will be accepted during the window of 12/14/15 – 1/29/16. January 29, 2016 will be the final day for accepting primary selection requests. All primary selection requests that are submitted during this window for one of the four primary selection schools will be honored for guaranteed placement.


School of Choice (SOC) Window

The District-wide School of Choice (SOC) application window will open in February per Board Policy for SOC. If Crown Valley families prefer a school that is not one of the four primary selection schools, then they may submit an SOC application. SOC site tours occur during the month of February during the SOC application window. Participation in the SOC process is optional. Please note that families may submit both a primary selection school request and an SOC school application if they choose to do so. For further information regarding the School of Choice (SOC) process, please visit the CUSD website at http://capousd.ca.schoolloop.com/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1232963504295


2016-2017 School of Residence

Crown Valley families that do not select a site, nor apply for School of Choice, will be placed in their new school of residence (also known as neighborhood school) beginning March 2016. The new school of residence will be based on the new attendance boundaries as defined by the Board of Trustees at a future Board meeting.
