Why are school registration and open enrollment in the Fall of each school year rather than at the end of each school year?
During the fall after school registration and open enrollment closes, the district has to notify families, complete the student management system and determine waitlists. The timeline also allows families to accept/decline placement offers and helps prepare them for the transition to a new grade or school. January through April is needed to determine staffing needs at each school and hire additional staff as needed.
