Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment Information

The open enrollment program is a statewide program that allows students to attend a public school in a district other than the one in which they reside, if space is available.  To be considered for open enrollment, parents/guardians must  submit an application for the regular application period between February 1-April 30, 2021 at 4pm. 

Visit the DPI Open Enrollment homepage to apply or review the 2021-22 Open Enrollment brochure.

Should we still apply if there are no seats open at the grade level(s) of my children?
Yes--all students who apply will be a part of the lottery process and then be placed on a waiting list if applicable.  Since districts must declare open seats in January, usually those wait-listed are able to attend based on changes to enrollment throughout the spring and summer months. 

How do you apply?
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) Open Enrollment application process is now online. Online applications are automatically sent directly to resident and nonresident school districts as well as the DPI.

Those who do not have access to a computer may request paper applications from any school district. Paper applications must be sent to the nonresident school district(s) to which you are applying within the application period.

Please do not submit both paper and online applications. No other documents are required at the time of application.
