Changes in Open Enrollment

What has changed?
The Oregon legislature established Open Enrollment between school districts to support school choice for the 2012-2013 school year.

The original statute allowing Open Enrollment has ended. Beginning the 2019-2020 school year, Open Enrollment is no longer allowed under state law.

Oregon will require that anyone requesting to transfer to a non-resident district be released by the resident district before requesting placement from his or her preferred district.

Open enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year closed April 1st.

If my child was accepted under Open Enrollment, can he or she stay?
Yes.  If your child was previously accepted under open enrollment, she or he may stay through graduation as long as the student stays within the Yujin Gakuen program through Kelly Middle School and on to North Eugene High School.  If your child enrolls in another district, your child may no longer return under open enrollment.

Where can I get more information on Open Enrollment and Inter-District Transfers?
The Oregon Department of Education web site provides additional information on Oregon inter-district transfer laws.
