Open Enrollment Annual Notice

Annual Notice: Urbandale CSD Open Enrollment

The deadline for filing an open enrollment application for the 2020-2021 school year is March 1, 2020 for grades 1-12 and September 1, 2020 for kindergarten students. The completed form should be submitted to the resident and to the receiving district.

  • Students that open enroll in grades 9-12 shall not be eligible to participate in varsity contests and competitions during the first ninety (90) school days of transfer.
  • Parents are responsible for transporting children open enrolled to another district. This applies to all students, including those with an IEP. If a child open enrolls to a district that is contiguous (borders) to the home district, and the parents’ income meets economic eligibility requirements, the family may qualify for transportation assistance.
  • Applications that have been denied may be appealed in the Iowa District Court of the resident district. If the application is based on harassment or a serious health condition, the denied application would be appealed to the Iowa Department of Education.
  • Students currently open enrolled into Urbandale Schools do not need to reapply.

Additional information regarding open enrollment can be found on the Urbandale CSD Website.
