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 4K 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 6, 2022.

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.
