Open enrollment begins Monday

Wisconsin parents and guardians can begin open enrolling their children in public schools for the 2014-15 school year Monday.

The enrollment period runs until April 30.

Traditionally, children in Wisconsin are assigned to public school districts based on the location of their parents' home. The open enrollment application period is the only tuition-free opportunity for most parents to apply for their children to attend a public school in a school district other than the one in which they live. Districts will notify parents by June 6 whether their open enrollment applications have been approved or denied.

Under the current open enrollment law, transportation, in most circumstances, is the responsibility of the parent. However, some school districts may provide partial transportation. Parents with questions should call the nonresident school district office to find out if any transportation will be provided. Reimbursement of a portion of transportation costs is available for families whose children are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals based on federal income guidelines.

Parents can apply online at www.sms.dpi.wi.gov/sms_psctoc. The online application will be available from midnight Monday until 4 p.m. April 30. A paper application can be obtained either from the DPI or any public school.
