Families with incoming kindergarten students residing in the Champaign Unit 4 School District may register for the 2020-21 school year and rank their elementary school preference as part of the Schools of Choice process. The registration period is underway and continues through March. All applications received during the registration period, regardless of date submitted, will be processed equally.

Schools of Choice maintains diversity in Unit 4 schools and provides families the opportunity to apply for admission to a variety of educational environments. Families should register in person at the Center for Family and Community Engagement (Mellon Building at 703 S. New Street, Champaign) during the designated period that continues until March 31 to increase chances of placement into one of their preferred schools. Children must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2020, to register for kindergarten.

Unit 4 “Choice Days” events begin Jan. 23 and include school tours, info sessions, and open houses to help families understand the registration process, talk to staff and get to know our schools in order to rank preference. Choice Books are available online and physical copies will be available at the Schools of Choice office. Additional information is available here.



A Unit 4 staff member will show you around at any elementary school on Tuesdays and Thursdays in February at 9:30 a.m. Meet in the main office.
