Steps in the open enrollment process—non-resident transfer (out-of-district) requests

  1. The parent obtains the Open Enrollment form at the individual site. The parent fills out form and leaves it with the principal/administration of the requested site.
    When sites are closed for the summer, open enrollment forms can be picked up and left in the Department of Student Services at the central administration office (545-2065).
    • For recommendations of approval, the principal signs and dates the Open Enrollment form and sends all copies to the student services department.
    • All requests for students in Special Education will also be reviewed by the Director of Special Education.
  2. If the principal is recommending denial of the request, a rationale form must be completed by the principal and must be attached to the open enrollment form sent to the student services department.
  3. Student services processes out-of-district forms and submits names to the Governing Board for approval.
  4. The Student Services Department sends notification to parents (approvals and denials).
