Have you considered Open Enrollment?

The School District of Janesville has over 400 of its students open enrolling from other school districts. Here are some frequently asked questions about this process:

What is Open Enrollment?

Wisconsin’s inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they live. Wisconsin residents in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade may apply to participate in open enrollment.

Children who are eligible for Early Childhood or 4-year old kindergarten may also apply if their resident district offers a similar program and they are eligible for that program in their resident district.

There is no tuition cost to parents for their children’s participation in open enrollment provided they meet the timelines outlined below. Parents will be charged the same yearly fees as a resident student including class fees, laboratory or extra-curricular activity fees.

Detailed information regarding the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's Full-Time Inter-District Open Enrollment program can be found at http://dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment.
