Boundary Waiver Application Process
If your child currently attends a school on a boundary waiver, you DO NOT need to re-apply unless the child has reached the highest grade level at that school.
Each year, Peoria Public Schools families have the opportunity to apply for consideration to attend a school other than the school(s) assigned to the family's home address. For the 2020-2021 school year, the following special placements are available:
- Boundary Waivers
Boundary waivers allow a student residing anywhere within Peoria Public Schools boundaries to apply for attendance to any other school within the District, provided the school hosts his/her grade level. Applications are granted based on the projected number of seats available in the student's grade level at the requested school. High school students are not eligible for boundary waivers. Boundary waiver placement is a privilege and therefore discipline and attendance are taken into consideration for approval and renewal each year. District bus transportation is not available for Boundary Waiver approved students. If boundary waiver students are not able to be at school regularly and on time, they may be required to enroll in the home school based on the family's home address. There are no guarantees that you will receive the waiver for the schools you applied for.
For the 2020-2021 school year, the application window will open on Monday, January 13, 2020 and close on Friday, February 21, 2020 at 5 p.m. Applications may be completed by clicking on the link to the right (starting January 13th), by visiting a school office or by stopping by the Administration Building to fill out the electronic form. The application is only available electronically. Peoria Public Schools strongly encourages parents/guardians to click on the "print" button once they hit the "done" button and get to the final screen of the application to print out the completed application for your records.
To be considered, students must be a current Peoria Public Schools student or be eligible to enroll (based on your address) in the Peoria Public Schools for the 2020-2021 school year. Early enrollment packets and boundary waiver applications will also be made available at the Kindergarten Roundup for incoming Kindergarten students only on April 25th at the Peoria Zoo in Glen Oak Park.
