NOLA-PS Early Learning & Childcare Open Enrollment has started!

Completing NCAP Main Round

Families apply online during the Main Round window. Main Round will open Fall 2023.
Critical Reminders About NCAP Main Round
  • Continuing students who do not apply to transfer out of their current school are guaranteed the right to return to their current school.
  • No applicant is guaranteed placement at a specific desired school (unless they already attend and the school offers the next grade). 
  • Families may apply to up to 12 schools in order of preference. 
  • Families should only apply to schools they prefer more than their current school. If a student is assigned to a school on their application, they will lose their current school assignment. 
  • Families should always apply in true order of preference, and list as many choices as they prefer more than their current school.
    • If only 1 or 2 schools are more preferred than their current school, they should only list those 1 or 2 schools.
    • If they would prefer not to return to their prior school, they should list 12 choices to increase the chance of receiving a new school assignment.
  • Families can submit a new application if they would like to change their school rankings. Newly submitted applications overwrite previously submitted applications; the last application submitted will be used in the match. 
  • Families who receive placement at a chosen school will forfeit any prior school placement and any guarantee to return.
  • If it is not possible to place a student at a preferred school on their application, the student will be invited to participate in Open Enrollment.
Modify Application Choices
  • Application resubmissions or modifications to the rankings or order of rankings shall overwrite the prior rankings. 
  • In cases of two or more applications submitted for the same child, the latest-dated application shall be used. 
  • Applicants are permitted to modify application choices until the application deadline, at which point the order of rankings is final. Rankings cannot be edited after the Main Round deadline.
