Want to attend a school other than your boundary school? RUSD offers an opportunity for families who would like to apply for enrollment into one of RUSD’s magnet, charter or alternative schools or a school that is not your boundary school. It’s called School Choice. Current families and families new to RUSD can apply for school choice during the upcoming enrollment window:
