The 2023-24 Open Enrollment Application window for NEW and RETURNING open enrolled students will begin on Friday, April 1 and run through Tuesday, May 30, 2023.  

Filling out this application does NOT guarantee a spot in our district. All potential open enrolled students grades K-12 will automatically be placed on a Waitlist. New applicants will be notified of their final application status by Friday July 28, 2023.

We will attempt to notify RETURNING open enrolled student applicants by Friday, June 30, 2023.


NEW APPLICANTS (those whose most recent school is not in JALSD):
Please make sure you have available a recent grade report or transcript and (if applicable) a copy of the current additional supporting documents including IEP, Gifted Scores, WEP, or a 504 Plan. We will contact you should we need to review these.


The Inter-District Open Enrollment School Board policy is #5113.  Board of Education Policies are available on our district webpage under District → Board of Education.  The policy explains the selection and notification process.  Once an application is submitted, you will be notified via email no later than July 28, of your student's open enrollment status.
