In-District Limited Choice

Families living within the Metropolitan School District of Washington Township boundaries may submit an application for their child(ren) to attend a school, other than their home/assigned school.

New attendance boundaries for all District elementary and middle schools will be in effect beginning with the 2019-2020 school year. To determine your home/assigned school, you may visit the District Enrollment Boundaries Interactive Map.

  • Staff members applying for In-District Limited Choice for their children to attend the school of their employment will receive priority;
