The district made 750 schools of choice seats available this year and the more students that come to the district the smaller the projected budget shortfall will be for the fall. 

Superintendent Jeanice Swift says it's hard to know the final number of school of choice kids that will come to the district.

Parents will be notified within two weeks of the status of their application. 

Swift says applications have been coming in at a brisk pace and she's expecting a spike in the last couple of days.
