The Huntington Beach Union High School District (HBUHSD) Open Enrollment period for the 2019-20 school begins Monday, January 14. During this time, parents of any current or incoming students who wish to attend a HBUHSD school other than his or her home school of resident should fill out an Open Enrollment petition. Parents of students who wish to attend their resident assigned high school do not need to take any further action.

To complete an Open Enrollment petition, parents must register for an Aeries Parent Account and complete the Enrollment Confirmation starting January 14. Although the district supports parental choice and is committed to Open Enrollment, once the Open Enrollment windows end OR a school reaches capacity, that school will be closed to Open Enrollment.
