We live in the LPS district, but we would like to enroll our children in a different LPS school than the one to which we are assigned. What do we do?
LPS values a family's right to choose the school that will best meet its children's needs. Follow the guidelines for in-district open enrollment:
- District residents have priority consideration over nonresidents for open enrollment or transfers from October 1 to January 31 of each school year. After January 31, all enrollment/transfer requests will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Resident students do not need to reapply once accepted at the new school.
- Transportation will not be provided unless there is room on an established route.
- There must be room in the grade level the student will enter.
- There must be a program in the new school that is appropriate for the enrolling or transferring student.
- Proof of address is required for in-district open enrollment.
Contact the school for specific information; especially at the high school level. Print and complete the 2014-2015 Application for In-District Student Open Enrollment or Transfer form , and return it to the school you want your child to attend, along with any other documentation requested by the school. All students new to LPS must follow the steps to register either online or at the ESC. All open enrollment requests must be approved prior to registration and enrollment.
For in-district open enrollment during the current school year, use the 2013-2014 Application for In-District Student Open Enrollment or Transfer form .
When is my child eligible for kindergarten?
Students may enter kindergarten if they are five years old on or before October 1 of the year of enrollment.
How can I learn more about my children’s schools?
Families are encouraged to attend their schools’ back-to-school functions and to contact their schools’ office staff to arrange a time to visit.
