What is Open Enrollment?

Wisconsin's inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they live.  Applications may be submitted to up to three nonresident school districts.

Who can apply?

Pupils in 5-year-old kindergarten to grade 12 may apply to participate in open enrollment.

Open enrollment for prekindergarten, 4-year-old kindergarten and early childhood education is limited.  Parents should call their resident school districts to find out if their preschool-aged children qualify for open enrollment.

How and when may parents apply?

The regular open enrollment application period for the 2017-18 school year is from February 6-April 28, 2017.  The application period closes at 4:00 p.m. on April 28, 2017.  Late applications will not be accepted for any reason.

An alternative application procedure allows pupils to apply for open enrollment at any time during a school year if certain criteria are met.  For additional information, please visit the alternative application procedures page.
