Open Enrollment - Inter District (Out of District)

The Appleton Area School District shall allow nonresident students residing with the State of Wisconsin to attend school full time within the AASD, and resident students shall be permitted to attend school in other districts. The process for nonresident parents to submit open enrollment applications takes place in February (between the first Monday in February and 4:00 p.m. on the last weekday in April). Absolutely no late applications will be accepted.

Once accepted as an open enrolled student, the student may transition to the same middle and high school as their attendance area peers. If the elementary or middle school student is transferring to a middle or high school which transition to more than one school, then the student will be afforded a choice of schools.

Transportation for open enrolled students is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

2023-24 Open Enrollment Period

The Open Enrollment process is only open Monday, February 6, 2023, to Friday, April 28, 2023, at 4:00 p.m. Applications must be submitted on the DPI form and the application is located online. Phoned-in applications are not permitted.
