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. These are referred to as non-resident districts.
Pupils who may open enroll:
Any pupil in 5-year-old kindergarten to grade 12.
Prekindergarten, early childhood education and 4-year-old kindergarten:
Only if child's resident district offers the same type of program, and
Only if child is eligible for the program in the resident school district.
Submit an application to the non-resident school district during the regular application period. A separate application must be submitted for each child.
May request specific school or program, but assignment to requested school or program is not guaranteed.
May apply to a maximum of three nonresident school districts per school year.
