Open Enrollment

OPEN ENROLLMENT
Open Enrollment is now underway for the 2017 – 2018 school year. Through Open Enrollment, your child has the opportunity to attend any school of their choice, if capacity permits. Apply by December 11 for priority consideration.

WHAT IS OPEN ENROLLMENT?

Open Enrollment, a program enacted by the Arizona Legislature, requires all school districts to allow students the opportunity to select a school of their choice if capacity permits. DVUSD complies fully with all provisions of the statute.

While most schools in DVUSD have space for Open Enrolled students, some schools are at capacity and are not currently accepting Open Enrolled students. 

WHO MAY APPLY FOR OPEN ENROLLMENT?
Any family living in Arizona may apply for Open Enrollment into a DVUSD school. 

IF MY CHILD IS CURRENTLY ATTENDING A DVUSD SCHOOL ON OPEN ENROLLMENT, DO I NEED TO REAPPLY?
It is not necessary to reapply for Open Enrollment to the current school your child is attending. Open Enrollment status is reviewed each year by the school principal and can be revoked based on discipline issues, attendance issues, and/or any other disruptions by the student or parents that interfere with the school’s daily operations. You will receive written notification from the school’s principal if your student’s Open Enrollment has been revoked due to these issues.

 IF MY CHILD IS CURRENTLY ATTENDING A DVUSD SCHOOL ON OPEN ENROLLMENT AND IS BEING PROMOTED TO THE NEXT LEVEL (e.g., K-6 PROMOTING TO MIDDLE SCHOOL, K-8 PROMOTING TO HIGH SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL PROMOTING TO HIGH SCHOOL), DO I NEED TO APPLY?
Yes, if the next level school is not your school of residence. Open enrolled students promoting from a K-6, K-8, or Middle School must complete an Open Enrollment application to attend the next school. For schools that feed two different feeder systems (e.g., Hillcrest Middle School feeds both Mountain Ridge High School and Sandra Day O’Connor High School), open enrolled students will be given enrollment priority to attend the school of choice provided the school and grade level have capacity. 

IS TRANSPORTATION PROVIDED?
No transportation is provided to students on Open Enrollment status.
