Part Time Public School Open Enrollment

Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, a pupil enrolled in a public school in the high school grades may attend public school in a nonresident school district for the purpose of taking a course offered by the nonresident school district.  A pupil may attend no more than two courses at any time in nonresident school districts. Wis. Stat. 118.52

The application is to be completed by the parent, legal guardian or pupil (if age 18 or older) and submitted to the nonresident school district (Washburn). The application must be received in the nonresident school district office no later 4:00pm on the date that is six weeks before the scheduled start of the course for which the pupil is applying. A postmark does not constitute timely submission.

Due date for classes beginning on Thursday, September 1, 2022 is by 4pm on Thursday, July 21, 2022 and by 4pm on Monday, December 12, 2022 for classes beginning on Monday, January 23, 2023.

This application process does not apply to homeschooled students. The part-time attendance law, Wis. Stat. sec.118.53, allows homeschooled students to attend a public school on a part-time basis. A school district is required, space permitting, to allow pupils who are enrolled in a homeschool program to take up to two courses per semester at any public school. Students must satisfy the minimum standards for admission to a course offered by the school district. Wis. Stat. sec. 118.53(4) limits a homeschool student to a maximum of two courses per semester but each course could be in a different public school.
