Open Enrollment

Public School Open Enrollment

Wisconsin's public school choice program allows students in grades kindergarten through 12 to attend any public school district in the state if space is available, subject to certain other restrictions. The parent is responsible for transportation. Sign-up procedures and deadlines are set by the state. The initial parental request must be filed in early February for the following year.  

Individuals interested in part-time open enrollment at the high school should contact the Lincoln Principal at least six weeks prior to the beginning of the semester and fill out the part-time open enrollment application
