Open Enrollment

  • Existing Open Enrolled students attending Columbus School District will not need to Open Enroll for the 21-22 school year. The previous approval continues from year to year, including the upcoming school year, as our policy does not require annual Open Enrollment applications.

    Non-Resident students that would like to attend Columbus School District in the 21-22 school year, please proceed with the Open Enrollment process.

    February 1 through April 30, 2021
    (deadline is 4:00 p.m. on April 30th)

    Applications may be obtained from the Department of Public Instruction; or apply on-line.

    For more information about open enrollment, see the Wisconsin Department of Instruction Open Enrollment Website.

    Parents/guardians will receive notices of approval/denial during the first week of July. Please respond to approval notices with your Intent to Attend for each student. Once the District receives confirmation that your student(s) will attend, enrollments will be created and your student's records will be requested from their previous school.
