Once you've submitted your Choices application, you might be wondering what happens next.
In December, the Student Integration Services office (which administers the Choices programs) will send out a Confirmation/Correction letter. If things stay the same as in years past, online applicants will receive an email stating that the you can view the letter online. If you submitted a paper application, SIS will likely send your letter via snail mail.
The Confirmation/Correction letter states that your application has been received, indicates which school you applied to, and any priority points your child may have. It also states whether any corrections are required.
If you applied to a Gifted/High Ability or Highly Gifted magnet program, you will receive a separate notification in January regarding your child's eligibility or ineligibilityfor the program. You can learn more about gifted magnet programs here.
Notification letters will be sent out in March. If things stay the same as in the past, all letters will be sent via snail mail, regardless of how your applied. However, online applicants may be able to view their letters online even before receiving their snail mail letter. If your child is accepted to a school you'd like him or her to attend, be sure to follow the instructions in the letter to claim your spot. And congratulations!
