Students who desire to attend a school or program outside of their designated attendance area may apply for Open Enrollment/Nonresident authorization for the school or program of their choice. In order to apply, an Open Enrollment/Nonresident Application must be filled out. Having a sibling already enrolled at the desired school does not eliminate the need to apply for younger students; each student must have their own application submitted.
Important Note: Parents need to hand-deliver a paper Open Enrollment form to the school. We will not be able to accept faxed or emailed applications.
Open Enrollment Critical dates for the 2017-18 School year:
December 1 through January 17 is the period in which applications for open enrollment should be submitted to the requested school.
Written status letters from the requested school will be sent to the applicant approving or denying the application by February 7.
Applicants who have been approved for open enrollment must contact the requested school by March 1 to confirm their desire to open enroll.
Currently open-enrolled 6th and 7th graders at Westview do not have to reapply for open enrollment for next school year.
Open Enrollment Reminders
Not all schools allow open enrollment. Each year the Board of Education reviews school populations, enrollment projections, building capacities and staff sizes and determines which schools can permit open enrollment.
Students whose applications are denied or whose applications were submitted after the January 17 deadline will be added to the waitlist of the requested school. Board policy also provides the opportunity of appeal.
