All students will attend school in their home school district unless they file a NEW open enrollment form with the receiving school district of their choice by Monday, APRIL 16.

(A family can always rescind their form after April 16.)

Students can only complete one open enrollment form and you cannot change your receiving school district after April 16.  A student can always return to their home school district. 

Example:  A student's home district is Cedar Falls.  The student completes an open enrollment form to the receiving school of XYZ by April 16.  The student attends XYZ until Sept. 1 and decides it is not a good fit.  The student can only return to their home school district (CF), unless they pay tuition at another school or relocate.  PLEASE complete your open enrollment forms by APRIL 16.


Transition Teams are in place.  Please refer to the following site for information:
