Open enrollment information

Enrollment

Each school district determines its own enrollment process.

Even if a school district is not on this list, local policies may allow your child to attend.

Contact the school district you are interested in for more information.

Requirements

Some open enrollment districts may only enroll students from neighboring districts.

If the school has a neighborhood feeder pattern, students who are already enrolled or living in the attendance region of the school are given preference over new applicants.

How to choose this type of school

Enroll your child at the enrollment office for the district you live in. Bring picture ID for you and your child’s birth certificate, passport, or I-94. You will also need immunization records and two items proving where you live.

School districts are not required to accept students through open enrollment and can refuse to enroll any student for any reason.

Each school district has slightly unique enrollment requirements and procedures, so always check with the district or school first.

Deadline

Each school district sets its own deadlines.

Transportation

A district enrolling a student under its open enrollment policy, upon request, must provide transportation for the student within the boundaries of the district on the same basis as it transports its own resident students. It may choose to use only its regular school bus stops.
