Open Enrollment

Overview:

The Board of Education endorses the neighborhood school concept and makes many decisions based on student population within a given attendance area. The Board recognizes, however, that some students may wish to attend a school or participate in a program outside their attendance area. Thus, students are assigned to school and may participate in programs for which they are eligible in the attendance area of their residence, but may apply to open-enroll in a different school or program in accordance with current school district policy. 


Parents/guardians wishing to open enroll their student(s) from outside of a Weld RE-4 school or if living within the school district boundaries and wishing to change schools, will need to complete an open enrollment form. The forms may be obtained at any school site or the District Office.

In-district: For an upcoming school year, students who live within the Weld RE-4 School District and wish to request a school change within the district must submit the open enrollment form by March 1.

Out-of-district: Students who live outside the Weld RE-4 School District boundaries and wish to attend must submit the open enrollment form by October 1 of the current school year.   

Once granted, open enrollment may be good for that level for the years the student attends (elementary or middle school). When moving into the middle school or high school level the student will then need to apply for open enrollment again. However, per policy, permission may be rescinded annually if the school's growth in enrollment results in inadequate space, resources, or undesirable conditions develop.
