Open Enrollment FAQs

VASD Open Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions

  1. When can I apply for open enrollment?  The regular open enrollment application period for the 2020-21 school year is from February 3 to April 30, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.

  2. How do I apply for open enrollment?  Go to: https://dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment

  3. When will I know if my application is approved or denied?  The non-resident school district (VASD) must mail notifications to parents in writing no later than June 7, 2020.

  4. If my student is already open enrolled into VASD and attending school in the district, do I need to reapply for open enrollment?  Yes and no.  Verona Area School District currently requires all open enrollment students to re-apply after 5th grade for entry into middle school.  If you are entering any other grade, you do not need to re-apply.

  5. Can I choose which elementary or middle school my student will attend? You can list your preference on the open enrollment application.  We take those into consideration; however, we place your student where space is available.

  6. Could my application be denied due to space limitations? Yes. In January 2020, the School Board will determine available spaces by grade level for non-special and special education open enrollment applications for the 2020-21 school year. The district currently has a very high resident student population.

  7. What if we moved out of the district this current year, but completed a tuition waiver to finish the school year in VASD?  How do we keep our child enrolled in VASD for future years?  You must apply for open enrollment between February 3 and April 30, 2020.  However, there is no guarantee.

  8. Can my open enrollment student(s) receive busing?  No, transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. For more information Transportation Reimbursement through the Department of Public Instruction, click here.
