Open Enrollment

What is Open Enrollment?

The Mequon-Thiensville School District participates in the Wisconsin interdistrict Open Enrollment Program, which allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they reside. Wisconsin residents in kindergarten through grade 12 may apply to participate in Open Enrollment. Parents must submit application forms to nonresident school districts during a window of time that generally begins with the first full week in February and runs through the last week in April (Please go to Department of Public Instruction website for exact dates and times). Each year the Board of Education meets to determine whether seats will be available and, if so, which grade levels will have openings. If there are more applicants than there are seats available, MTSD engages in a computerized random selection process to determine accepted applicants.

When and how are students selected for the Open Enrollment Program?

Students are able to apply for admission into the Open Enrollment program during a window of time that generally begins the first full week in February and runs through the end of April. For the 2017-18 school year, the Open Enrollment window is February 6 though April 28, 2017.
