District unveils school-choice Web site

Families shopping for their 4-year-old's kindergarten - or looking to transfer an older student within the Minneapolis Public Schools - have a new tool available: the district's online School Choice Center.

Found at schoolchoice.mpls.k12.mn.us, you can find options by location, programs, start time and other personal priorities. The "find" feature lets you compare two or more schools' enrollment, hours and student demographics.

The site also organizes the district's extensive information about each school's performance.
