Children Applying for Open Enrollment

Information Needed

For each child applying for open enrollment, you will be asked to enter the following information:

  1. First and last name (use the child's legal name, not a nickname)
  2. Date of birth
  3. Gender
  4. Ethnicity (optional) – You must choose either: (1) Hispanic or Latino; or (2) Not Hispanic or Latino
  5. Race (optional) – Choose all applicable races (American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander and white). You must choose at least one race.
  6. Grade This Year - This is the grade level your child is in for this school year. If your child is not in school, enter "No Grade" or leave blank.
  7. Grade Entering This Fall – This is the grade level your child will enter in September, 2018. This must be the grade that follows your child's current grade. If your child is not currently enrolled in school, enter the age-appropriate grade.

Please list only those children who are applying for open enrollment.

Questions

  1. My child is already open enrolled. Do I need to reapply?

    Once a student is attending a nonresident school district under open enrollment, the student is not required to reapply annually. The student may only be required to reapply if the student is entering middle school, junior high or high school. A nonresident district may require a student to reapply when the student enters middle school, junior high or high school. If the nonresident school district requires reapplication, it must notify the parent no later than the beginning of the application period (before Monday, February 5, 2018, for the 2018-2019 application period).

    Otherwise, you must re-apply for open enrollment if:

    1. You want your child to attend a different nonresident school district.
    2. Your child is currently attending the district but under a tuition waiver due to a move.
    3. You plan to withdraw your child (for example, for home-schooling, foreign exchange program, etc.) for the remainder of this school, but want your child to return to the nonresident district next school year.
    4. Your child is currently in eighth grade at a K-8 district and you want your child to continue open enrollment to the UHS district associated with the K-8 district.

    If you have any questions about whether you need to reapply for open enrollment, the best place to call is the school district of attendance.

  2. My pupil is already open enrolled and we are moving to a different resident district for the next school year. Do I need to submit a new open enrollment application with the new resident district filled in?

    No, you do not need to submit a new open enrollment application if your child will have a new resident district for the next school year. You can only be required to reapply for open enrollment one time and one time only - at the beginning of middle school, junior high, or high school. This reapplication is not required by the nonresident district, but they can choose to have parents reapply.

    If your child will have a new resident district for the next school year, you need to notify your child's district of attendance (the child's current nonresident district) of the change and they will update your child's information in our open enrollment database.

  3. If I submit an application, does it mean that if it is approved, my child must transfer and attend that district? What if I change my mind and do not want my child to open enroll?

    An open enrollment application is just that, an application, not a commitment. Your child can return to their resident district at any time. If you want to withdraw your open enrollment application, you can delete it.

    To delete an application for a particular child, click "Delete" next to that child's name. You will only be able to do this during the open enrollment application period. After the application period is over, if you decide you do not want your child to open enroll, you can simply notify the school district(s) to which your child has been accepted that your child will not attend.

  4. How can I change or delete a nonresident school district to which I applied?

    Scroll through the application to page 10. Click "Delete" next to the school district you do not want. If you want to delete a school district for one of your children, but not another, click "Add or Remove Kids" next to the name of that school district. If you want to apply to a different district, click "Add Another School District." You will only be able to do this during the open enrollment period.

  5. Is there a way for me to improve my child's chances of approval? Does it matter if I submit an application on the first day of the application period versus the last day of the application period?

    No, there is no way for you to improve your child's chances of approval. The application period is not first come, first served. You can apply anytime during the regular application period, but the application must be submitted by 4:00 pm on the last day of the application period (last weekday in April).
