Open Enrollment - Humboldt Community School District

Open Enrollment

Districts are now required to notify patrons of open enrollment application deadlines, the possibility of loss of eligibility, and the possibility of transportation assistance.  This requirement is found in a new paragraph in subrule 17.3(2), Iowa Administrative Code, which reads as follows:

By September 30 of each school year, the district shall notify parents of open enrollment deadlines, transportation assistance, and possible loss of athletic eligibility for open enrollment pupils.  This notification may be published in a school newsletter, a newspaper of general circulation or a parent handbook provided to all patrons of the district.  Parents/guardians considering the use of the open enrollment option to enroll their children in another public school district in the state of Iowa should be aware of the following dates:

March 1, 2019--Last date for regular open enrollment requests for the 2019-2020 school year.

September 1, 2018--Last date for open enrollment requests for entering Kindergarten students for the 2018-2019 school year.  Parents/guardians of open enrollment students whose income falls below 160% of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for transportation assistance.  This may be in the form of actual transportation or in the form of a cash stipend.  Parents should be aware that open enrollment may result in the loss of athletic eligibility.
