We will be updating this page with important and timely information about the RSCO application process. Please check back here regularly for updates.
Late Application (Starts on April 5, 2021)
Families who did not submit an application before the on-time application deadline on March 19, 2021 will have the opportunity to submit a late application for RSCO schools and programs for the 2021-22 school year starting on April 5, 2021. We have included some frequently asked questions about the late application.
- When is the Late Application Period?
The Late Application begins on April 5, 2021 and ends on August 15, 2021 for CTECS, Magnet Schools and Open Choice. Not all schools and programs are available during the Late Application period.
- Can a family submit both an on-time application and a late application for the same child to increase their chances of getting a placement?
No. The late application is available to applicants who did not submit an application by March 19, 2021. Applicants who submitted an application during the on- time period may not submit a late application.
- Can a family submit multiple applications for one student?
This is not just a question of late applications. As indicated in the RSCO materials, a family should submit only one application per applicant. If a family submits more than one application, only the original application will be retained and the later applications, including any late applications, will be deleted.
- What are my chances of receiving a placement offer if I submit a late application?
We do take late applications and we encourage families to apply even if it is during the late application period. Every year we place late applicants in available seats, so it is worth applying. On-time applicants are placed (seated) before late applicants.
- How will I know if I receive a placement as a late applicant?
RSCO will send you notification if you receive a placement with instructions for accepting that placement.
Watch for Placement Announcements in April!
The on-time RSCO application closed on Friday, March 19, 2021. Currently, families that submitted an on-time application have “View Only” access, which means they will only be able to view their information and will not be able to make any changes. RSCO plans to email families in April with either a placement offer or a waitlist notification. We will use the same email account that you used to create your child’s application. Please monitor your email and check back here for announcements and additional details.
