Open Enrollment

What is Public School Open Enrollment?

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.  Applications may be submitted to up to three nonresident school districts.

Who may participate in Open Enrollment?

Students in 5-year-old kindergarten to grade 12 may apply to participate in open enrollment.

Open enrollment for prekindergarten, 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.

How and when may parents apply?

PLEASE NOTE: Students currently attending Kettle Moraine via Open Enrollment do NOT need to re-apply for Open Enrollment.

2024-25 School Year

What is an exception to the open enrollment application period? 

Parents normally apply for open enrollment for the following school year during a three-month application period which begins in February and ends on the last weekday in April. However, 2011 Act 114 established a procedure by which parents may apply for open enrollment outside of the regular application period.
