What is the difference between the RSCO school choice application and the Hartford district school choice process?
The RSCO school choice application and the Hartford District Choice applications are two separate school choice options, each have separate applications and separate notification and placement offer deadlines. Hartford and suburban families may apply through the RSCO school choice process which includes the three CT technical high schools in the region, magnet schools and the Open Choice Program.   


Hartford District School Choice is only for Hartford residents applying to Hartford non-magnet Public Schools.
