School Choice and Open Enrollment programs


SCHOOL CHOICE for Sheboygan Area School District Residents


Families living within the Sheboygan Area School District have many options when it comes to choosing a school for their child. Each home address within the district boundaries has pre-determined neighborhood schools that students may attend. Enrollment is guaranteed at your neighborhood school. Parents may also use our School Choice program to request a transfer to a different school within our district. In addition to our neighborhood schools, the Sheboygan Area School District offers a variety of charter schools that offer new and different learning environments.

Parents interested in requesting a transfer to a different school in the district must complete an Intradistrict/Charter School Transfer Request between Dec 1 - Feb 15 for the following school year.

The application period for submitting intradistrict school choice request forms has been expanded to December 1 - February 15. Applications will be processed on a random selection basis (rather than first come, first serve).

Applications received after February 15 will be placed on a waiting list to be reviewed on April 30 if there is still space available in the school.

Tuition Waived: Due To Move Program
A parent/guardian may request to have their child continue in our district even though they have moved outside our district during a school year. This type of request will fall under the State of Wisconsin’s Tuition Waived: Due to Move. The parent/guardian must write a letter requesting approval to remain in the school district and should submit requests to the Assistant Superintendent of Student and Instructional Services.
