Open Enrollment

The Board of Trustees desires to provide enrollment options that meet the diverse needs and interests of the district's students. Ninth Grade Open Enrollment is a period of time when an incoming 9th grade student may request a high school other than their assigned home school to attend. You must complete an online Open Enrollment Transfer Application to be eligible.  You do not need to complete an Open Enrollment Transfer Application if you want your child to attend their assigned home school. Please refer to the district website Open Enrollment Page for program details and deadlines.
