Open Enrollment Application Process


About Open Enrollment

To have a better understanding about the Open Enrollment process, please read the information packet BEFORE applying.

Open Enrollment enables Arizona students to attend public schools outside their attendance area. In accordance with state law, the District has established an open enrollment policy and implemented an open enrollment program without charging tuition for non-resident students and resident transfer students.

The Open Enrollment Application is NOT for school registration.

The District has an open-enrollment program as set forth in A.R.S. 15-816 et seq. The open enrollment program described in this policy shall be placed on the District website and made available to the public on request.

No tuition shall be charged for open enrollment, except as authorized by applicable provisions of A.R.S. 15-764, 15-797, 15-823, 15-824, and 15-825.

Completed Applications

  • The school administration will verify capacity and determine eligibility for Open Enrollment. Students unable to open enroll due to lack of capacity will be placed on a wait list.
  • When capacity becomes available, school administration will approve student open enrollment from the wait list following procedures outlined in Governing Board Policy JFB.

Approved Applications

  • If the application is approved by your requested school, you will receive notification from the front office.
  • School registration will take place at the approved school AFTER you receive notification of Open Enrollment approval from the school.
