OPEN ENROLLMENT

Instructions

For the coming school year, students interested in enrolling in a Salt Lake City school, who live outside the district or school boundaries, may apply for an Open Enrollment Application during the Early Enrollment period from December 1, 2016 through February 17, 2017. Applications are taken in the Student Services Department of the Salt Lake City School District Administration East Building, 440 East 1st South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84111.

Students may apply for enrollment in schools designated as "Open" to transfer. Selected schools, programs and grades may be at capacity for the upcoming 2017-18 school year and not available as a choice for out-of-resident students. A list of available schools, grades, and programs or other information pertaining to the open enrollment policy may be obtained after November 30, 2016 from the Student Services office at the above address or by calling 578-8206 or 578-8475.

Students currently enrolled in sixth grade must apply for transfer to the middle school of their choice and eighth grade students must make application for the high school of choice during the Open Enrollment period.

A $5.00 processing fee will be charged at the time of application and may be waived for qualified applicants.

Parents and students will be notified in writing by March 31, 2017 of acceptance or rejection of the request for an Open Enrollment transfer to that school.

A currently enrolled nonresident student shall be permitted to remain enrolled, subject to the same rules and standards as resident students, without renewed applications in subsequent years UNLESS any of the following occurs:

  • The student graduates or is no longer a Utah resident;
  • The student is suspended or expelled from school;
  • The district determines that school enrollment will exceed the open enrollment threshold;

If the transfer of a currently enrolled student is being rejected for the coming year, parents will be notified in writing by March 15, 2017.
