High School Round 2 Fair

Thank you to everyone who attended the Round 2 Fair on March 14 and March 15 at Martin Luther King Jr. Educational Campus. Please remember that your Round 2 application is due to your guidance counselor on Friday, March 20!

 

Round 2 Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I apply for Round 2?
You can list up to 12 program choices on your Round 2 application. Students who did not receive an offer in Round 1 will find the Round 2 application with their Round 1 results letter. All students can request a copy of the application from their school guidance counselor or Family Welcome Center

2. When is the Round 2 application due?
The Round 2 application is due back to your guidance counselor on Friday, March 20.

3. What is the difference between Round 1 and Round 2?
In Round 1, you can apply to any program for which you are eligible which means you are in the program’s admissions priority groups as listed on the school’s page in the High School Directory. In Round 2, students must review the Round 2 Program List as not all programs have availability. Please note that the nine Specialized High Schools are not included in Round 1 or Round 2 applications, and you cannot apply to Specialized High Schools in Round 2.

4. Can I apply to any program?
Review the Round 2 Program List to see all programs with availability in Round 2. Availability varies vary by grade level (ninth or tenth), admissions method, and type of offer available (general education, students with disabilities, or all), so read through carefully to ensure you are eligible for programs you are interested in.

5. I received an offer in Round 1. Should I apply in Round 2?
Students who received an offer in Round 1 and are interested in other programs are welcome to apply in Round 2. A Round 2 offer will replace a Round 1 offer: if you change your mind after receiving a Round 2 offer, your appeal to get your Round 1 offer back will not be considered. If you do not receive an offer in Round 2, you keep your Round 1 offer.

6. What if I do not receive an offer to a program in Round 2?

  • If you received an offer in Round 1 and you then submit a Round 2 application and do not receive an offer from one of your application choices, you will retain your Round 1 offer. In other words, if you do not receive a Round 2 offer, you keep your Round 1 offer.

  • If you did not receive an offer in Round 1 or Round 2 from one of your application choices, you will be assigned a high school program with availability as close to your home as possible.

7. Should I apply to the same schools in Round 2 as I did in Round 1, if they have availability in Round 2?
Students can apply to any program that has availability for their student group. If you did not receive an offer to one of your choices in Round 1, here are some things you can do to increase the chances of receiving an offer in Round 2:

  • Include a variety of admissions methods on your application

  • Apply to schools in which you are in a higher priority group (e.g. Priority 1)

  • Add more choices on your application; at least 9 choices is recommended, but you have 12 choices on the application

8. Is my zoned program guaranteed in Round 2?
Zoned guarantee programs offer a guarantee to students who live in the zoned neighborhood. Students must apply to the program by putting it on their Round 1 or Round 2 application.
