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 families may be charged the same fees as resident students. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from school.

The enrollment period in 2017 is from Monday, Feb. 6 to Friday, April 28. The state encourages online applications. Paper applications are available in the Plymouth School District office, which must be returned to the district office by April 30.
