What is Open Enrollment?
Open Enrollment is a State of Wisconsin program that allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they live. There is no tuition cost to parents for their children's participation in open enrollment.
Who may participate?
Wisconsin residents in grades 4K to 12 may apply to participate in open enrollment. Students in pre-kindergarten may participate only in limited circumstances; parents should call their resident school district administrator to find out if their preschool-aged children qualify.
How and when may parents apply?
The open enrollment application period for the 2017-18 school year is from February 6- April 28, 2017. The application period closes at 4 p.m. on April 28, 2017. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason.
Those wishing to apply for open enrollment into the Lake Mills Area School District may do so online through the Department of Public Instruction website http://dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment.
If you need assistance or use of a computer, please contact Roseanne at (920) 648-2155 x222.
Paper open enrollment applications will only be accepted at the District Office and can be found under the brochures and applications area on the right-hand side of this screen.
Seats available for the 2017-2018 School Year have been approved at the January 2017 board meeting by the Board of Education of Lake Mills Area School District.
Do students currently attending our district under the Open Enrollment Program have to reapply each year?
No. Nonresident students currently attending the Lake Mills Area School District under the Open Enrollment Program are not required to reapply. Please note that under certain circumstances, a student may be returned to their resident school district.
Who is responsible for transportation?
Parents are responsible for transporting their children to and from school.
