Sierra Sands Unified School District Board Policy 5116.1, Intradistrict Open Enrollment, provides a window of opportunity May 1-15 each year for parents to request attendance at a school of their choice for the following school year.

Open enrollment requests will be honored at the requested school if there is still capacity at that school after resident students have been accommodated. Students living within a school's designated attendance boundary are given priority and cannot be displaced by a student
requesting a transfer.

Applications will be available beginning May 1, 2018 at all district elementary and middle schools and at the district office (113 Felspar). Completed forms will be accepted through May 15, 2018. Enrollment in a school of choice is determined by lot from the eligible applicant pool.

Students currently attending the school of their choice on either an open enrollment or non-open enrollment transfer do not need to submit a new request in order to remain at that school. However, as agreed to in the conditions for transfer, a student may be displaced due to excessive
enrollment at the requested school
