Open Enrollment

IMPORTANT: Lakeville Area Public Schools will be contacting families who have applied for Open Enrollment or Intra District Transfers by May 1 regarding school building placement status for the 2018-19 school year.

As District 194 begins the 2018-19 school building placement process, families should monitor their parent portal for status updates. If you do not have a parent portal account, you will be contacted by email or phone.

Approvals and communications may be spread out over several days. If you have not heard from the District 194 Student Services Administrative Assistant by May 1 regarding your request for 2018-19 Intra District Transfer or Open Enrollment, please contact Mary Moody at 952-232-2025 or mary.moody@isd194.org.  

 

Statewide Enrollment Options (Open Enrollment) is for students who live outside of Lakeville Area Public Schools boundaries, but wish to attend school in the Lakeville Area Public School system. Minnesota Statute 124D.03 allows all Minnesota’s public school students the opportunity to apply to attend school outside of the school district where they live.

La Inscripción Abierta es una opción para estudiantes que viven fuera de los límites de Lakeville Area Public Schools, pero que desean asistir a las escuelas que están dentro del sistema de Lakeville Area Public Schools. El Estatuto de Minnesota 124D.03 otorga a los estudiantes de las escuelas públicas de Minnesota la posibilidad de presentar una solicitud para asistir a una escuela fuera del distritoescolar del lugar donde viven.

 

When do I need to apply?

Lakeville Area Public Schools will be going to an online application process for the 2018-19 school year. The window for accepting Statewide Enrollment Options applications for the 2018-19 school year will begin November 20, 2017.  The State of Minnesota allows Lakeville Area Public Schools to accept Statewide Enrollment Options applications at any time, however the official window for accepting applications starts Nov. 20, 2017. School building placement may not be determined until as late as May 2018, and in some instances right before the start of the 2018-19 school year. We work diligently all winter/early spring assessing student enrollments and staffing needs. Please note that there are many criteria that are used to determine school building placement and it is not based on first come, first served.

¿Cuándo es necesario que lo solicite?

El estado de Minnesota les permite a las Lakeville Area Public Schools que acepten solicitudes de Inscripción Abierta (Inter) provenientes de todo el estado, en cualquier momento; sin embargo el período oficial para aceptar las solicitudes comienza el 20 de noviembre de 2017. La colocación en los edificios escolares no se pueda determinar hasta fines de mayo de 2018 y en algunos casos, incluso poco antes del comienzo del período lectivo 2018-19. Trabajamos en forma diligente todo el invierno/principios de primavera, asesorando acerca de las inscripciones estudiantiles y las necesidades de personal. Tenga en cuenta que hay muchos criterios que se utilizan para determinar la colocación en un edificio escolar y no responde al método de atender al primero que se presenta.

 

Where should I attend scheduled information sessions?

While waiting for approval of a Statewide Open Enrollment application, you are welcome to attend Information Sessions scheduled at your first choice school, with the understanding that your student may or may not be approved for that school. If you submit paperwork at a school other than where your student might end up being placed, the paperwork can be easily transferred to the school building of placement.

 

How do I request enrollment into Lakeville Area Public Schools?

For an existing Open Enrolled family, please use the School Choice option in your Parent Portal account to select the schools you would like to apply for. For a newly requesting family, you will need to complete and submit a paper copy of the Statewide Enrollment Options Applicationor you may choose to come to the ISD 194 District Office with a valid picture ID and request a Parent Portal account be created for you. Please note that whether an existing or newly Open Enrolled family, you are additionally required to complete and submit a paper copy of the Statewide Enrollment Options application.  Please include student’s date of birth and your email address on the application.  A reminder:  Open Enrolled students must provide their own transportation.  Completed paper applications should be submitted to mary.moody@isd194.org

 

Am I required to apply every year?

Approval in to the district is permanent through your child’s graduation.  However, please note that an approved application will only be valid for the duration of your child’s enrollment at the school designated on the application.  When your child promotes to a new school, you will be required to submit a new application for school building placement approval.  Additionally, if you change resident districts, you will need to submit a new application.

¿Tengo obligación de presentar la solicitud todos los años? La aprobación dentro del distrito es permanente hasta que el estudiante se gradúe.  Sin embargo, tenga en cuenta que una solicitud aprobada solo será válida mientras dure la inscripción de su hijo en la escuela designada en la solicitud.   Al ser promovido a una nueva escuela, usted deberá presentar una nueva solicitud para la aprobación de la colocación en el edificio escolar.  Además, si cambia de distritos de residencia, deberá presentar una nueva solicitud.

 

If my child has been attending Lakeville Area Public Schools under the State’s Open Enrollment Agreement, which middle or high school will they attend when they promote?

We strive to allow the student to promote to the Middle or High School that the majority of their peers will attend, but evaluation of enrollment numbers each year may necessitate their enrollment to a school which will have available space, regardless of where their peers will attend. There is no guarantee as to the school your student will promote to.

Si mi hijo ha estado asistiendo a Lakeville Area Public Schools, en virtud del Acuerdo Estadual de Inscripción Abierta, ¿a qué escuela media o superior asistirá cuando lo promuevan?

Nos esforzamos para permitir que el estudiante pase a la escuela media o superior a la que asistirá la mayoría de sus pares, pero la evaluación de las cantidades de inscritos de cada año, puede hacer necesario que se inscriban en la escuela donde haya lugar, independientemente del lugar donde asistan los pares de su hijo. No hay garantías respecto de la escuela a la que pasará su hijo.
