Open Enrollment (School Transfers)

Open Enrollment Changes to Permit Policy – At the Board Meeting on October 21, 2019, the Board of Education revised our permit policy.  Most notable changes are the following: 

  • In order to transfer to a different school within the District (intra-district) or out of the District (inter-district), families must complete and submit an application within the time frame indicated (December 1, 2019 – January 31, 2020)
  • Families will be notified of the status of their application by February 28th
  • Permit approvals will be based on enrollment projections and site availability
  • The only opportunity for students to transfer will be during the Open Enrollment period.
  • The intradistrict permit process has been eliminated and replaced by Open Enrollment
  • The Open Enrollment application and the inter-district permits will be available online or at the Student and Family Services Office.
-You only need to apply for Open Enrollment if you choose to have your child attend a school that you are not assigned to based on address.
-If you already have a permit for your child to attend their current school you do not need to reapply.
-However, if your child will be moving from 5th to 6th grade or 8th to 9th grade and you would like them to attend a different school than what is assigned based on your address you will need to complete Open Enrollment.
