Last year over 1,000 SUSD students and their parents filed through Danner Hall at San Joaquin Delta College to discover the pathways offered in our schools at the 2018 Specialty Schools and Programs Fair!

Eighteen SUSD schools and programs were represented, including Pittman Elementary and their dual-immersion program; Commodore Skills with their AVID and robotics program; the Stockton Public Safety Academy with student cadets; Merlo Institute with their award-winning SkillsUSA team; and more! Entertainment at the fair was provided by the Chavez High School Show Choir and the Fremont Elementary Travel Troupe, each performing a twenty-minute set in Delta College's West Forum.

The application PRIORITY PERIOD is from January 26 - February 8, 2019, although applications will be accepted after February 8. All student applications received during the priority period will be placed in a random selection computer program for processing. A lottery will be held in the SUSD boardroom on March 1 at 10:00 AM to establish lists used to determine placement into each program. Applicants outside of the priority period will be placed according to the date and time their application was submitted.

Selection is determined by the lottery, with preference given to siblings already enrolled in the program and other school-specific requirements. Kindergarten placement is based on available space, the lottery, with sibling preference and other factors taken into consideration.
