2017-18 Option Enrollment for Non-District Residents
Now Accepting Option Applications for 2017-18
The deadline to submit applications for Option Enrollment is near! If you and your child are Nebraska residents who live outside our District, you may apply for your child(ren) to option from your home district to Westside Schools for the 2017-18 school year.*
Currently, we anticipate having available seats at all levels—elementary, middle, and high school. Selection order is determined by lottery, and placements are prioritized in accordance with state law.**
To apply, download an Option Enrollment Form and submit a completed form for each child. Applications must be received at the ABC Building, 909 S. 76th Street, no later than 4:00 p.m. on March 15. All families will be notified of their status no later than April 1.
*For more information see Board Policy 5112.
**Students currently attending Westside Schools under Open or Option Enrollment do not need to submit a new application to continue, unless they are in 6th or 8th grade. State law requires that students graduating from one building to the next reapply for Option enrollment; those applications will be automatically accepted as long as received no later than 4:00 p.m. on March 15, 2017.
