What is Public School 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 may participate in open enrollment?
Students 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 open enrollment application period for the 2013-14 school year is from February 4-April 30, 2013. The application period closes at 4:00 p.m. on April 30, 2013. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason.
Parents may apply in one of two ways:
On-line (recommended) at http://dpi.wi.gov/sms/psctoc.html
Although on-line application is recommended, paper applications may be obtained from the Department of Public Instruction and must be delivered (hand-delivery is recommended) to the nonresident school district.
