The open enrollment period for Wisconsin public schools is February 5 - April 30, 2018. 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 during this 7-week period.
Who May Participate?
Students in 5-year-old Kindergarten to grade 12 may apply to participate in open enrollment. Open enrollment for pre-kindergarten, 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.
Open Enrollment Process
Parents interested in enrolling into the OASD can access online application forms and detailed application information through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website.
The Wisconsin DPI website has many resources for the open enrollment process:
NEW for the 2018-19 School Year: Part-time Open Enrollment
Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, the Wisconsin DPI is offering a part-time open enrollment program. Students enrolled in a public school in grades 9-12, may attend a public school in a nonresident school district for the purpose of taking a course offered by that nonresident district. A student may attend no more than 2 courses at any time in the nonresident district.
