Open Enrollment and Boundaries

Open Enrollment

We recognize the desire of some parents/guardians to enroll their children in a school other than their neighborhood school, from either within or outside of the Boise School District. If you are interested in applying for admission to a school in our District, please review the information on this page.


Application Process

  • Read the Board Policy Manual section on Open Enrollment (below).

  • Print, fill out and sign both the Open Enrollment form and Contract.

  • Return the completed form to the appropriate school:

    • If you are a resident of the Boise School District, please take the form to your home neighborhood school's principal.

    • If you live outside the Boise School District's attendance boundaries, please take the form to the principal of the Boise school you would like your student to attend.

  • Your application will be reviewed by the appropriate principal and District area director and a decision to approve or deny will be made.

  • Open enrollment applications will be accepted at any time throughout the year. However, those applications submitted by the dates indicated below will receive first consideration for open enrollment in the indicated grade.

  • Seventh Grade - May 15th of the fifth grade year

  • Eighth and Ninth Grade - February 1st of the preceding school year
