Public School Open Enrollment
Wisconsin’s inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they reside. Dates for Open Enrollment are February 3, 2014 – April 30, 2014. To complete an online application beginning February 3, go to: http://sms.dpi.wi.gov/sms_psctoc
The online application closes at 4:00 p.m. on April 30. Late applications are not accepted for any reason.
If your child is currently open enrolled you do not need to reapply.
Kindergarten Registration – February 3-7, 2014
If you missed registration, you can still register your child at your neighborhood elementary school Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. You will need your child’s original birth certificate and immunization record. Registration will take about 30 minutes. Your kindergarten eligible child is welcome, but need not be present to register. If your child was enrolled in the 4K program, you do not need to register for kindergarten; those records will be transferred to your neighborhood school.
If you missed registration week, you can still register your child for 4K. A child is eligible for DCE’s 4K Program next fall if he/she is four years of age on or before September 1st of the school year for which they are registering. 4K registration will be held the second full week of February at all partnering agencies (see map and contact information). Your child’s birth certificate is needed to officially register, so please be certain to bring it, along with your child’s immunization record. Registration will take about 30 minutes, and your 4K-eligible child need not be present to register. You may print the necessary forms from the website and complete them before you come to register your child, but you must register in person. You may not mail or email the forms. Forms are also available at partnering agencies.
