The 2017-2018 open enrollment application season for new students is February 6 - April 28, 2017.
Open enrollment is a program that invites parents to enroll their child(ren) in a school district other than the one in which they live. The School District of Cashton welcomes applications for students entering 4K-12.
Parents may apply during the open enrollment period in one of two ways:
• On-line (recommended) at http://oe.dpi.wi.gov
• Although on-line application is recommended, paper applications may be obtained from the Department of Public Instruction and must be delivered (hand-delivery is recommended) to the nonresident school district during the application period.
Parents wishing to be considered for open enrollment outside the regular open enrollment applicaiton period can use an alternative application process. Additional information is available on the DPI website.
