Open Enrollment 2024-25

Open Enrollment



Sierra Sands Unified School District Board Policy 5116.1, Intradistrict Open Enrollment, provides a window of opportunity May 1-15 each year for parents to request attendance at a school of their choice for the following school year.


Open enrollment requests will be honored for the requested school if there is still capacity at that school after resident students have been accommodated.  Students living within a school’s designated attendance boundary are given priority and cannot be displaced by a student requesting a transfer. Enrollment in a school of choice is determined by lottery from the eligible applicant pool.  

Applications will not be accepted after May 15. Late applicants shall not be added to a waiting list but shall instead wait for a subsequent lottery.

The District will NOT provide transportation to open enrollment students outside their zoned school’s established attendance area. 

Students currently attending the school of their choice on a previous open enrollment transfer do not need to submit a new request in order to remain at that school. However, as agreed to in the conditions for transfer, a non-zoned student may be displaced due to excessive enrollment at the requested school.

If your request is approved, you will be notified by School Personnel the week prior to the start of school.
