Open Enrollment K-8


  • Begins March 1 and ends at 5:00 p.m. on March 31, 2021

    Current 8th grade students in the 20-21 school year must complete the 9-12th application.

    Open Enrollment offers current SUSD students an opportunity to attend schools outside of their attendance area. All schools have attendance boundaries and priority will be given to students who live within their assigned school boundaries. Admittance to the school of your choice under the Open Enrollment process is done by a random lottery system. The lottery will be held for high schools on March 10, 2021 and elementary schools on April 27, 2021. Notification of lottery results will be sent via US mail by the end of May 2021.

    Although some of our schools are already at capacity, this policy allows families who reside within our district boundaries to request enrollment for their children at any school within our District. Some grade levels may be impacted due to class size limitations and space availability in our schools, this may impact the number of approved applications.

    Families with children previously placed at their school of choice through Open Enrollment do not need to reapply unless they would like to change schools. Students who wish to return to their neighborhood school must reapply during the open enrollment period.

    Open Enrollment Lottery and Selection Process

    The school accepting the student under the open enrollment process becomes the student’s school of attendance for the duration of the time that the student remains at any grade level offered at that school.

    Once a student is accepted and attending the school of choice the student may be subject to displacement if they fail to comply with the following guidelines:

    • Maintain a satisfactory record of daily attendance.
    • Comply with all state laws and school and District rules and regulations with regard to student discipline.
    • Maintain a satisfactory record of academic progress.

    NOTE: You do not need to participate in Open Enrollment if you would like your student to attend their school serving your regular attendance area.
