What is Public School Open Enrollment?
Wisconsin's Open Enrollment process allows for inter-district movement of public school students. The open enrollment process does not apply to intra-district movement of students.
Menomonie Area School District’s School Board Policy defines intra-district movement among the multiple elementary sites as an Attendance Area Exception. Please click here to review the Elementary Attendance Areas for more information.
If you change residence from one Wisconsin school district to another but want your child(ren) to continue attending school in the former district, depending upon the date of the move, you may be required to apply for either a tuition waiver and/or open enrollment.
