March 1 is the deadline to file open enrollment application forms with the resident and receiving district. Applications must be filed in the school year prior to the desired open enrollment year for students in grades 1-12. An open enrollment request for a prospective kindergarten student must be filed with the resident and receiving district by September 1 of the school year of enrollment into kindergarten. Transportation assistance for those who qualify according to income guidelines may be available in the event that the open enrollment occurs between contiguous school districts. Please note that students in grades 9-12 may not be eligible to participate in varsity contests and competitions during the first 90 days of the school transfer.
