Document Number: 10800 Open Enrollment Is on the Menu - But Can You Order It? - Open enrollment can be limited to a student's choice of schools within district boundaries (intradistrict choice) or schools outside of the boundaries of the district (interdistrict). State policymakers decide whether schools may choose to participate or whether they are required to participate. Open enrollment is not a one-size-fits-all policy. It may be voluntary or mandatory at the state or district level, and it may allow for intradistrict or interdistrict transfer. Among other topics, this paper discusses what open enrollment looks like, why it's an option, and why states and districts offer it. (Marga Mikulecky, ECS, June 2013)...
