  • How are students matched to schools?

    Posted by:

    After the application closes, automated computer software will match each student with the best possible school based on the student’s choices and the policies of the enrollment system. Students will then receive a single offer to attend the best possible school given their selection. This computer software is used in several other districts with centralized enrollment systems and has been customized for Newark’s needs. Students will learn of their matches prior to the end of the current school year.

  • How does Universal Enrollment work?

    One Newark Enrolls streamlines the enrollment process by combining applications, timelines, and processes into a single system that all participating schools follow. In other words, families will only have to fill out one application, which will allow them to apply to all schools in the Universal Enrollment Program.
