OPEN ENROLLMENT REMINDERS

Not all schools allow open enrollment. Each year the Board of Education reviews school populations, enrollment projections, building capacities and staff sizes and determines which schools can permit open enrollment.

Students whose applications are denied or whose applications were submitted after the January 15 deadline will be added to the waitlist of the requested school. Board policy also provides the opportunity of appeal.
