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.
