Open Enrollment

Per Iowa Code 282.18 open enrolling is a process that allows parents/guardians residing in an Iowa school district the option of enrolling their children into another Iowa school district. There are two deadlines (March 1 and September 1) that must be kept in mind when considering applying for open enrollment.

  • March 1: Deadline for regular open enrollment applications for the upcoming school year. There may be exceptions to the March 1 deadline which are based on “good cause.”
  • September 1: Deadline for prospective kindergarten students.


To obtain an open enrollment handbook, application, or for more information, please refer to the Iowa Department of Education website.
