* Frequently Asked Question: If a student is already open enrolled. Do they need to reapply?
Once a student is attending a nonresident school district under open enrollment, the student is not required to reapply annually. The student may only be required to reapply if the student is entering middle school, junior high or high school. A nonresident district may require a student to reapply when the student enters middle school, junior high or high school. If the nonresident school district requires reapplication, it must notify the parent no later than the beginning of the application period (before Monday, February 3, 2014, for the 2014-2015 application period).
