Open Enrollment


Open Enrollment

Open enrollment is the process for parents/guardians residing in another Iowa district who want to enroll in Northeast Community School District. An application to is to be filed with the resident district by March 1 to be considered for the following year.   Those enrolling in kindergarten have until September 1 to file an application for open enrollment.

Open Enrollment Process

Parents/Guardians interested in open enrolling a student(s) to the Northeast Community School District must complete an Open Enrollment Application for each student. 

Other Information

Transportation to and from a point on a regular school bus route of the receiving district is the responsibility of the parent/guardian, unless economic eligibility requirements are met and the receiving district is next to the resident district.
