Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) is excited to announce School Choice Phase II applications for the 2018/19 school year will be accepted beginning May 1, 2018.

During the School Choice Phase II application process, parents and guardians may submit applications for magnet programs and school reassignments at schools with available seats following the initial School Choice application window, which took place earlier this school year.

This year, Phase II is divided into multiple application periods to provide families with quicker notifications regarding the status of their child’s application (see chart below).
