New Orleans Public School Acceptance Letters Are In The Mail

Apr 11, 2014

The common enrollment process for New Orleans public schools, OneApp, mailed home the last acceptance letters on Friday.

OneApp lets families rank up to eight school choices, and assigns families to their school of choice, if spots are open. If seats are full at one school, the system will place a child at their next choice, and so on.

Most of the city’s schools are part of OneApp. Only nine schools still ask families to apply individually, and some of those have already mailed out acceptance letters. Others started mailing them out this week.

If families don’t get any of their eight choices, they can apply again through OneApp by May 9.
