Non-boundary: A school or program that does not have a geographic boundary, including charter schools and specialty programs. A specialty program may be housed within a boundary school, such as a dual language program. Enrollment is not guaranteed.

Sibling Priority: A student is eligible for a sibling priority if he or she has a sibling who is admitted to the requested school.
