Enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year opened this week in New Orleans public schools. Parents apply for most schools through the One App, a website where they list their preferred schools. One App uses an algorithm to try to match them with their top choice. Sounds simple, but there are a lot things to consider when making your selections.
