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.
