Open Enrollment allows families to apply for their student(s) to attend school districts other than the one in which they live. The Open Enrollment application window for 2020-21 is February 3 - May 29, 2020. Outside of this window, families can apply for Alternative Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment is a one-time application and does not need to be submitted each year.

There is no tuition cost to families when they open enroll, however, you will be charged the same student fees as a resident student, i.e., consumable fees, extracurricular fees. Open enrolled families are responsible for their own transportation to and from school. Exceptions exist for students attending daycare in Elkhorn with a regularly scheduled bus stop at or near the location.
