MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- Public school open enrollment, Wisconsin’s public school choice program, continues with a new application period beginning Feb. 5 and running through April 30 for the 2018-19 school year.
Traditionally, children in Wisconsin are assigned to public school districts based on the location of their parents’ home. Open enrollment is a tuition-free opportunity for parents to apply for their children to attend a public school in a school district other than the one in which they live.
The state’s public school open enrollment program is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
Under public school open enrollment, parents may apply during the three-month application period to the school district they wish their children to attend using the online application website. Application deadlines are firm. Early and late applications are not accepted. Districts will notify parents by June 9 whether their open enrollment applications have been approved or denied.
