Open Enrollment

Wisconsin’s public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they live.

Who may participate?

Pupils in five-year-old kindergarten to grade 12 may apply to participate in open enrollment.

Open enrollment for prekindergarten, four-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.
