Controlled Open Enrollment for the 2018 - 2019 school year

The Controlled Open Enrollment application window for the 2018-19 school year has reopened.  During this time, parents may submit an online application for their student to attend a school outside of their attendance zone as long as it has available seats. 

If you would like to learn more or to submit an online application, visit the district's Controlled Open Enrollment page. 

Please note that if your student already has a seat in an out-of-zone school and plans to return to the same school next year you do not need to apply.  Your student is automatically approved to return to the same school next fall.

Transportation to and from school under Controlled Open Enrollment is the responsibility of the parent.

Tryouts for the 2018 -2019 school year will be held in early May.  Visit the Athletics page to access the Dance website.  The dance packet can be picked up in the front office or downloaded from the Dance webpage.
