Attention Out-of-District Applicants:

The District of Choice (DOC) law, which has been our mechanism for serving high school students living outside our district boundaries, is set to sunset at the end of this school year. As the law is expiring, we will not have legal authority to serve these students. Given this uncertainty, we will not be accepting any new students under DOC for attendance in MarinSEL. We will continue to serve students already attending MarinSEL under DOC for the duration of the current law.

Important Dates:

  • Application Deadline: January 16, 2021
  • Exploration Days: February 6th and February 7th, 2021

    • Exploration Days are a required part of the MarinSEL application process. Students applying must attend one Exploration Day. Please see application for more information.
