Arizona students are permitted to attend public schools outside their district attendance area or outside their district of residence.
Open enrollment applications
for both in-district and out-of-district students are accepted at the District Administrative
Center during the dates specified for open enrollment on the application form. Governing Board policy sets the application period as Sept. 1 through Jan. 21. Applicants are notified of acceptance or denial in the spring.
Out-of-district parents who miss the open enrollment period may also submit an application to the principal of the school they wish their child to attend. In this case, the school principal notifies the parent of their status as soon as they are able to determine space availability in their school.
Open-enrolled students are responsible for their own transportation to and from school.
