Thank you for considering the School District of Lodi to Open Enroll your student!
District Mission: In partnership with our community, nurturing every student's potential for growth and opportunities; socially, mentally & academically in a safe, respectful, and an inclusive environment to create innovative problem solvers.
The regular open enrollment period for the 2024-2025 school year will be from February 5 - April 30, 2024.
- February 5 – April 30, 2024 – Parents must submit applications online (recommended) or directly to the nonresident school district (district you’re requesting to attend).
- June 7, 2024 – Nonresident school districts must mail notices of approval or denial. If the application is approved, the school district must notify the parents of the specific school or program to which the student is assigned. If the application is denied, parents have 30 days to file an appeal.
- June 14, 2024 – Resident districts must notify applicants if the application is denied. If the application is denied, parents have 30 days to file an appeal.
- June 28, 2024 – Parents of accepted applicants must notify the nonresident district if the pupil will attend the nonresident district in the 2024-25 school year. If the parent fails to make this notification, the nonresident district may refuse to allow the pupil to attend the district.
What is Open Enrollment?
The inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend public school in a school district other than the one in which they reside.
Who Can Apply?
Any Wisconsin resident in 4K to grade 12 may apply to attend a nonresident school district under the open enrollment program. However, a child may transfer to a nonresident school district for early childhood education or 4K only if the child’s resident school district offers the same type of program and only if the child is eligible for that program in the resident school district.
When will I know if my application is approved or denied?
The nonresident school district must notify parents in writing by June 7th.
Can my open enrolled student get busing?
No, transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
If my student is already open enrolled in the School District of Lodi and attending school in the district, do I need to reapply for open enrollment?
No. Re-application is not necessary.
