The months of December, January, and February have been legislated for parents to exercise their school choice option for the Early Enrollment Period Transfer for the forthcoming school year (2014/2015).
If you wish for your student(s) to attend a school other than the school in your home boundary, you are required to complete a USOE Standard Open Enrollment Application (Early Enrollment Period Transfer) and submit it to the school of your choice between the time period beginning Monday, December 2, 2013, and ending on Friday, February 21, 2014.
This is the best time to request a transfer to a non-resident school for the forthcoming school year. The forms are available in the requested school’s office from December 1, 2013, through the third Friday in February.
Students residing within Granite School District are given priority. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis and will be stamped with the date and time received. Each application is individually screened and considered based on available space in the requested grade, class, or program.
The requested school has until Monday, March 16, 2014 or within six weeks after receipt of the application (whichever is later) to notify the parent/family of acceptance.
If your student(s) are accepted on the USOE Standard Early Open Enrollment Application, it is not required that you reapply the following school year—as long as space is available, and the student(s) remain in the requested school. As in the past, when a student moves from elementary school to junior high, or from junior high to high school, there is no automatic feeder system–students on permits in the 6th and 9th grades, who wish to attend a school outside of their home school boundary, must reapply on the USOE Standard Open Enrollment Application (during the Early Enrollment Transfer Period) to request the preferred school.
