Public School Choice in Wisconsin -- Open Enrollment
Open enrollment is available to all public school students and requires a commitment from the family. The law sets the timelines which have to be followed by the family and the schools.
You may apply on-line at: http://dpi.wi.gov/oe
Students who have already been accepted as open enrollment students do not have to reapply. Students who are pres-ently enrolled under Tuition Waiver Status do have to apply. The resident school district is the district where the stu-dent will reside in the 2017-18 school year. The non-resident school district is the district the student wants to attend in the 2017-18 school year. To take part in the open enrollment process, please note the following dates and steps which have to be followed.
