Open Enrollment




The online application for the 2014-15 school year is available February 3 to April 30, 2014 on the DPI Open Enrollment website (http://oe.dpi.wi.gov).  The application period closes at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, April 30th.  Late applications are not accepted.

The Franklin Public School District participates in the Wisconsin inter-district Open Enrollment program, which allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they reside. Wisconsin residents in grades Kindergarten through 12th may apply to participate in Open Enrollment.

If you are currently attending Franklin Public Schools through Open Enrollment, you do not need to reapply.  If you are currently attending Franklin Public Schools through Tuition Waiver, you must apply for Open Enrollment if you moved on or before February 3, 2014.

Parents are responsible for transporting their children to and from school. The Franklin Public School District does not require continuing Open Enrollment students to re-apply. For more information call (414) 525-7634 or visit the Department of Public Instruction website.
