New Open Enrollment Dates

It is a pleasure for the Madison School District to announce the Open Enrollment dates for the 2018-2019 school year. December 1, 2017 through January 26, 2018 parents/guardians may submit an application for open enrollment to the school where you wish your child(ren) to attend. Open enrollment applications are available in the “Open Enrollment” section below. A separate application is required for each student. Open enrollment applications will be approved/denied on a “first come, first served” basis. The school office will time-stamp applications as they are received.

New Open Enrollment Students: Please submit your open enrollment application between December 1, 2017 and January 26, 2018 to receive notification of approval/denial of open enrollment prior to March 1, 2018. Any open enrollment applications received after January 26, 2018 may not be approved/denied until August, 2018. Approval for open enrollment will be based on physical capacity, current attendance, discipline records, and current academic progress.
