LPS Open Enrollment Windows

In an effort to better serve families LPS now offers two open enrollment windows. All qualified students who apply within an open enrollment window will be part of a random drawing for acceptance, following district enrollment guidelines.  This means families will have several weeks to turn in open enrollment applications for a random drawing of qualified students. Families will no longer feel pressured to line up on October 1st to turn in applications for open enrollment.  Open enrollment applications must be turned in to each requested school. Families are encouraged to apply during window one.  Enrollment for the 2021–2022 school year is as follows:

  • Enrollment Window One begins October 1, 2020 and ends November 13, 2020. Students will be notified by the end of the first full week in December (December 11, 2020). Students who apply, and are not chosen in Open Enrollment Window One, will be placed on a waitlist.  Should space become available, a random drawing, based on LPS Open Enrollment Guidelines will occur.  Additionally, students who applied in Open Enrollment Window One, will be placed in the random drawing before students who applied during Open Enrollment Window Two. 
  • Enrollment Window Two begins November 16, 2020 and ends the first Friday following winter break (January 8, 2021). Students will be notified by the second Friday of the second semester (January 15, 2021).  
  • Because preschool and kindergarten registration does not take place until January, families will be notified of open enrollment acceptance by the end of January.
