Open Enrollment set for March 1- April 1
Open enrollment allows students living outside the Dayton School District who wish to attend a school in Dayton next fall to submit an Open Enrollment transfer request between March 1 and April 1, 2014. Open Enrollment differs from traditional inter-district transfers because students only have to receive approval from the accepting district. Students accepted in open enrollment become permanent students of the Dayton School District. Dayton has openings for current inter-district transfer students at all grade levels, and limited openings for students in Grades K-8 depending on the grade level. For specifics of the process or questions please call 503-864-2215.
