Open Enrollment Between School Districts

Iowa Open Enrollment law allows parents/guardians to enroll their child in a district other than their district of residence by completing an open enrollment application. Families who meet certain income eligibility guidelines may qualify for transportation assistance from their resident district. High School students who transfer school districts through open enrollment have a 90 school day waiting period to participate in varsity athletic competition, although they may practice with the team during this time. However, the student may participate immediately in a varsity interscholastic sport if the student is entering grade nine for the first time and did not participate in an interscholastic athletic competition for another school or school district during the summer immediately following eighth grade.
