Intra-district Open Enrollment, May 1-15

Sierra Sands Unified School District (SSUSD)

SSUSD Board Policy 5116.1, Intradistrict Open Enrollment, provides a window of opportunity May 1-15 each year for parents to request attendance at a school of their choice for the following school year.

Open enrollment requests will be honored at the requested school if there is still capacity at that school after resident students have been accommodated. Students living within a school’s designated attendance boundary are given priority and cannot be displaced by a student requesting a transfer.

Transfer requests will be available online at the district website, www.ssusd.org beginning May 1, 2022 and will be accepted through May 15, 2022. Enrollment in a school of choice is determined by lottery from the eligible applicant pool. Please note: Students must be fully enrolled in a Sierra Sands school to be eligible for an Open Enrollment transfer. Please do not fill out a transfer request until your enrollment is complete.

The district will NOT provide transportation outside the school’s established attendance area.

Students currently attending the school of their choice on a previous open enrollment transfer do not need to submit a new request in order to remain at that school. However, as agreed to in the conditions for transfer, a non-zoned student may be displaced due to excessive enrollment at the requested school.

For more information, please contact your zoned school.
