High School Students learning in classroom.

Per Iowa law, It is the intent of Iowa Code section 282.12 to maximize parental choice in providing a wide range of educational opportunities that are not available for students in the district of residence. Open enrollment is the procedure allowing a parent/guardian to enroll a child in a public school district other than the district of residence at no tuition cost.

Parents/guardians making use of the open enrollment option to request enrollment of their children in another public school district in the State of Iowa must submit an Open Enrollment Application to both the requested district and resident district for approval.

Transportation shall NOT be provided to students who enter the District under the Open Enrollment Law of 1989 as amended, unless such transportation is required by law.

The District has the right to assign an open enrolled student to a particular school. Parents should be aware that open enrollment may result in the loss of high school athletic eligibility.

Completed applications may be submitted electronically to

If your open enrollment application is approved, you must also complete the CRCSD registration process.
