• Middle and high school placement criteria

    All principals and assistant principals

    All principals with rising 5th and 8th grade students should review the placement criteria for School Choice. For SY17-18 placements, eligibility for schools with entrance criteria will be determined by calculating the student’s "composite score," with components including report card grades, attendance (in some cases), and results on the 2016 PARCC ELA and math assessments. Please visit the City Schools website for more information on middle and high school placement criteria. Additionally, the School Supports Office works with school choice liaisons to understand calculation of composite scores.

    For questions, please email School Choice contact Trevor Roberts at tlroberts@bcps.k12.md.us in the School Supports Office.
