SDLIP/Willard Priority, Sibling and Neighborhood Registration Begins Dec. 9.

MS Science Fair SDLIP 5th graders, Willard 5th graders and siblings of current Blair students have priority to enroll at Blair, but only during a limited window. For the 2020-2021 school year, the window to take advantage of this special status is Dec. 9 to Jan. 10. Parents must come in person to Blair to register their students, by 12:00 noon on Jan. 10.

Those who live in Blair's attendance zone may ALSO begin registering on Dec. 9. If Blair is one's assigned neighborhood school, do not procrastinate on registering. 

Blair has been growing in enrollment as more people discover Blair, and space is limited. 

Students from the IB (International Baccalaureate) Primary Years Programme at Willard Elementary have preference to attend Blair for our IB programs. Spanish Dual Language Immersion Program (SDLIP) students have preference to continue their learning in Blair's middle school and high school SDLIP. Brothers and sisters also get preference to attend Blair alongside their siblings. The window to exercise this preference is only 14 business days because of Winter Recess!

Please come see our friendly registrar, Ms. Annie Jananian in the Main Office during this window to enroll. Please read further details on the Registrar's page on the website.  

Students in PUSD other than neighborhood and priority status who wish to come to Blair must apply in the online Open Enrollment lottery, Jan. 9 - Jan. 31, 2020. 

Students who participate in the Open Enrollment lottery between Jan. 9 and Jan. 31 will learn on Feb. 19 if they have been chosen for a permit to attend Blair. Registration then will follow at Blair from Feb. 25 to Mar. 6. 

Full details on PUSD's 2020-2021 Open Enrollment process, including the priority window, are in English here and Spanish here.

Students who live in Blair's attendance zone DO NOT need Open Enrollment permits, and though there is no deadline for neighborhood students to register at the school, having a count of enrolled neighborhood students helps in deciding the number of Open Enrollment permits and the planning of classes. 

Current Blair students already attending through an Open Enrollment permit DO NOT need to reapply to continue at Blair.

For those who do NOT live within PUSD, contact the school district Welcome Center to process an inter-district transfer. Applications can then be submitted starting Apr. 20.

More than 85% of Blair students come from outside our attendance zone. We are a school people intentionally seek out to attend!

Welcome new students!
