The San Dieguito Union High School District offers several information nights in February to help families decide campuses for their children to attend in the 2020-21 school year, the district recently announced.

Campus selection season opens Feb. 13 at 8 a.m. and runs through March 2 at 4 p.m. The selection window allows students within district boundaries to choose a high school to attend.

Those eligible for school selection are:

Eighth-grade students currently living in the district, who must select a high school that they wish to attend in the fall of 2020;

Students in grades nine through 11 living in the district who seek to change schools;

Students in grades eight through 11 who live in district boundaries but do not currently attend one of the district’s schools.

The district offers a series of high school information nights, all scheduled for 6 p.m., to help parents and students decide which campus they prefer:

Torrey Pines in Carmel Valley: Wednesday, Feb. 5

Canyon Crest Academy in Carmel Valley: Monday, Feb. 10

La Costa Canyon in south Carlsbad: Tuesday, Feb. 11

San Dieguito Academy in Encinitas: Wednesday, Feb. 12
