Open Enrollment Period For Public Schools Starts In Three Weeks

Wisconsin’s Public School Open Enrollment period begins February 5th. Fond du Lac Schools Superintendent Jim Sebert says it runs until April 30th, which is a much longer time frame than the period used to be. The district also runs its intra-district open enrollment period at the same time for those who want to have their kids switch school inside the district. Being a larger school district, Fond du Lac typically loses more students than it gains during the open enrollment period. That has been the trend over the last 8 to 9 years. Sebert says families in the district are fortunate to have so many school choices with public and private K-12 education and the UW-Fond du Lac, Moraine Park Technical College and Marian University.
