Wisconsin’s inter-district public school open enrollment program, often referred to as “school choice” allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they live. Parents must apply to the nonresident school district they would like to have their child/children attend.
This program is open to Wisconsin residents who have students in grades Kindergarten to 12. There are no tuition costs to parents for their children’s participation in Open Enrollment. However, in most cases, parents are responsible for transporting their children to and from the nonresident school.
Additional information may be obtained from the School District Office.
