Open Enrollment

Minnesota law covers enrollment of students who are Minnesota residents and wish to enroll in a regular public school district other than their own. This is called Statewide Enrollment Options, or open enrollment. All open enrollment requests are completed using a standard Statewide Enrollment Options form signed by the parent or legal guardian. This signed form should be submitted to the nonresident district of choice.
Foster parents may also sign open enrollment forms if the foster parents want the foster child to attend a school district other than where the foster parent or parent/legal guardian of the foster child reside.

There are other school enrollment options for you to consider, including Alternative Learning, Charter Schools, Nonpublic and Homeschools, and Online Learning.
