Utah is a school choice open enrollment state. This means that a student can attend any public school outside their home boundary school, where space is available.
There are two time periods in which a student may apply to attend another school: the Early Open Enrollment Period and the Late Open Enrollment Period. The Early Open Enrollment period is the recommended time to apply for next school year.
The Early Enrollment Period begins December 1 and continues through the third Friday in the month of February.
The Late Enrollment Period to enroll for the current school year is anytime during the year. It may also be used to apply for enrollment in the forthcoming school year, if after the third Friday in February.
Open Enrollment applications can be obtained at the REQUESTED school. Exercising school choice does not require a release from the student’s home boundary school or district.
