What is Open Enrollment?
The inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend public school in a school district other than the one in which they reside.
Who can apply?
Any Wisconsin resident in 4K to grade 12 may apply to attend a nonresident school district under the open enrollment program. However, a child may transfer to a nonresident school district for early childhood education or 4K only if the child’s resident school district offers the same type of program and only if the child is eligible for that program in the resident school district.
When can parents apply?
The regular open enrollment application period for the 2021-22 school year is now closed. The alternative open enrollment period for the 2022-2023 school year will open July 1, 2022.
An alternative application procedure allows pupils to apply for open enrollment at any time during a school year if certain criteria are met. For more information, please see the brochure here.
