Open Enrollment for 2018-19

The OPEN ENROLLMENT period for the 2018-2019 school year was From January 10, 2018, through February 7, 2018 and is now CLOSED.

 

WHAT IS OPEN ENROLLMENT? The Santa Clara Unified Board of Trustees has established a policy of limited Open Enrollment. Although some of our schools are already at capacity, this policy allows parents who reside within the boundaries of the district to request enrollment of their children at "any District school which may have space available for additional students."  

 

WHO NEEDS TO DO THIS? Current Laurelwood students who do NOT wish to apply for Open Enrollment for a different school do NOT need to take any action at this time. Registration for the 2018-2019 school year will occur automatically. Only those who wish to attend a SCUSD school other than their assigned SCUSD “Home School” need to complete the Open Enrollmentapplication process.

 

HOW and WHERE DO I GO TO APPLY FOR OPEN ENROLLMENT

Situation A) If your student IS already currently enrolled in a SCUSD school (and therefore has an assigned SCUSD 6 digit permanent ID number), you may simply apply for Open Enrollment online.  GO TO Santa Clara Unified Open Enrollment Application.
