Parents/guardians considering the use of the open enrollment option to enroll their children in another public school district in the state of Iowa should be aware of the following date:
March 1, 2012 – Last date for regular open enrollment requests for the 2012-2013 school year, unless student shows “good cause”. Parents of children who will begin kindergarten in the school district are exempt from the open enrollment deadline. Deadline for kindergarten students is September 1, 2012.
Parents/guardians of open enrollment students whose income falls below 60% of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for transportation assistance. This maybe in the form of actual transportation or in the form of a cash stipend.
Parents should be aware that open enrollment may result in the loss of athletic eligibility.
