About Open Enrollment
Wisconsin's inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents of children in kindergarten through 12th grade to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they reside.
There is no tuition cost to parents who opt for open enrollment, though parents may be charged the same fees as resident students. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from school.
