    The School Choice Lottery will be open from Nov. 8 to 30. Students interested in attending a school other than their neighborhood high school must apply to attend a focus option or alternative school. Those schools include Benson Polytechnic High School, Jefferson High School-Middle College for Advanced Studies, and the Metropolitan Learning Center

    For more information, contact your school counselor or call Enrollment and Transfer at 503-016-3205. Applications for the lottery will be available online.

    Families and eighth-grade students may also visit schools for upcoming information nights to find out more about a specific school’s programs. View the 2018-19 Eighth-Grade Information Night schedule for dates and times.

    Eighth-grade students living in the Jefferson attendance area have guaranteed entry at Jefferson or at a comprehensive high school assigned by address. Jefferson families must fill out a dual-assignment choice form by Dec. 7.
