District - Enrollment & Registration - Open Enrollment
The Iowa Open Enrollment law permits a wide range of educational choices for students enrolled in schools in Iowa. A parent/guardian may request open enrollment to a district other than the district of residence if application deadlines and/or a good cause (as defined by law) exists.
Open enrollment is the process for parents/guardians residing in another Iowa district who want to enroll in the Solon Community School District. An application to is to be filed with the resident district by March 1 to be considered for the following year. Those enrolling in kindergarten have until September 1 to file an application for open enrollment.
Open Enrollment Process
Parents/Guardians interested in open enrolling a student(s) to the Solon Community School District must complete a digital sign-up for each student.
If capacity exists according to the open enrollment framework, the Board Secretary will contact each parent/guardian in chronological order of their completed digital sign up. Parents/Guardians will then complete and submit an open enrollment application for consideration. Open enrollment applications for the current school year will be considered expeditiously while applications for the following school year will be considered after January.
More information about the board of education approved open enrollment framework, including a detailed timeline for incoming Kindergarten students is available here.
Transportation to and from a point on a regular school bus route of the receiving district is the responsibility of the parent/guardian, unless economic eligibility requirements are met and the receiving district is next to the resident district.
Students who open enroll in grades 9-12 must wait 90 days to participate in interscholastic contests at the varsity level. For questions on eligibility, please contact:
