Open Enrollment is the process by which parents/guardians residing in an Iowa district may enroll their children into another Iowa school district under the terms and conditions of Iowa Code section 282.18 and 281--Iowa Administrative Code 17. The deadline for students entering Grades 1-12 is March 1st. For students entering kindergarten or preschool special education, the deadline is September 1st.
Iowa Law requires an application for EACH child in a family requesting open enrollment to be sent to both to the resident and receiving districts on/or before deadline in order to be considered for approval. You may submit the form to either district and that district will review and forward to the second district.
