Enrolling Your Student
Open Enrollment Information
We recognize the desire of some parents/guardians to enroll their children in a school other than their neighborhood school, from either within or outside of Fremont County Joint School District. If you are interested in applying for admission to a school in our District, please review the information on this page.
If the applicant student is a non-resident, a behavior/discipline record and an attendance record from the student's current/previous school must be attached to the application when it is submitted. The application will not be complete without these documents and the application will not be processed without the required records.
Read the Board Policy on Open Enrollment (Policy 3010).
Fill out the Open Enrollment Application form.
Email or hand deliver the completed form and records (if applicable) to the principal of the school for which you are requesting open enrollment.
Applications will be accepted until February 1 of each year for enrollment in the subsequent school year. This deadline shall be waived in the case of students who move out of their attendance zone during the school year. The District may also consider other applications submitted after February 1.
The District will prioritize applications from students who live within the District and may deny students for one or more of the following reasons:
The student was expelled by the previous District;
The student has a documented history of significant disciplinary issues or history of chronic absenteeism. However, students applying who have a 504 plan or IEP may not be denied enrollment or have enrollment revoked if the behavior resulting in disciplinary action or chronic absenteeism is a manifestation of the student’s disability.
The receiving school within the District does not have space available according to the capacity limits set by the Board of Trustees.
Applicants meeting the above deadlines will receive notification of their open enrollment status within 60 school days of the date that the complete application was submitted.
Parents/guardians of a student accepted under this policy will be responsible for transporting the accepted student.
Open Enrollment students do not need to re-apply to maintain their enrollment at the school in which they’re enrolled; however, the parent/guardian shall notify the District of their intention to re-enroll on an annual basis no later than February 1.
Students who reside in the District and move out of their school attendance zone during the school year must initiate an Open Enrollment request to stay in their school.
Please contact the school you would like your student to attend.
