Open Enrollment

Alternative Open Enrollment Applications Now Being Accepted

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.  During the regular open enrollment application period parents/guardians must submit an application from February 5 until 4pm on April 30, 2018. However, once this initial period and the deadline for reply to accept an offered seat have past, the Alternative Open Enrollment period begins.  Visit the DPI Open Enrollment homepage to apply or review the 2018-19 Open Enrollment brochures.

To learn more about our nationally recognized school community, visit the About section of our website or request a tour by contacting us at or 262-367-2000x124.

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.

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 since districts must declare open seats in January, often additional seats become available over the summer months.
