Boundary waiver applications now available for the 2017-2018 school year

Each year, Peoria Public Schools families the opportunity to apply for consideration of a special placement in a school other than the school(s) assigned to the family's home address. The boundary waiver application opened on April 7, 2017 and will close on Friday, May 12, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. You can access the application and more information about the process by visiting
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 (with the exception of those applying and interviewing for a JROTC program) are not eligible for boundary waivers. Boundary waiver placement is a privilege and therefore discipline and attendance are taken into consideration for placement and renewal each year. District bus transportation is not available for Boundary Waiver placements. 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.
