Open Enrollment Application Process and Instructions

The Open Enrollment application is available online at www.dysart.org/oe. The initial Open Enrollment period begins each November prior to the new school year. For initial consideration, a deadline is set each year for Open Enrollment applications to be submitted. Open Enrollment applications will continue to be accepted throughout the year, and will be reviewed as capacity is determined. Parents needing access to a computer with internet access may visit any district school or the front lobby of the Dysart District Office.

Information on Dysart’s specialized programs may be found at www.dysart.org under the Parents drop down menu:
  • K-8 Parents: select the Academics link under K-8 Parents
  • High School Parents: select the Academics link under High School Parents
 
Currently Enrolled Dysart students
  • If you intend for your student(s) to continue at their current open enrolled school choice – NO ACTION IS REQUIRED at this time.  Your student(s) enrollment will remain at their current school of attendance.
  • If you intend for your student(s) to attend a different school within the Dysart Unified School District, you must complete a new open enrollment application through your Parent Portal account. Parents needing access to a computer with internet access may visit any district school or the front lobby of the Dysart District Office.
  • If you intend for your student(s) to attend the school where you reside (your residential boundary area school), please contact the school directly. To determine the school boundaries where you reside, visit www.dysart.org, select the Parents drop down menu at the top, and under the column titled “Enrollment” select Boundaries. Select the link titled School Boundary Interactive Map. Type in your address (including city), select “Search” and “K-8 Bounds” for elementary or “HS Bounds” for high school.
  • If your student is in High School and participates in sports, all high school students are subject to Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) transfer rules. Questions regarding eligibility of a transfer student to participate in sports should be addressed with the Athletic Director at the high school of attendance.
  • Students in the Dysart Unified School District are expected to demonstrate successful academic, attendance and behavioral standing. These three components are important for all students to be successful throughout the school year. As an open enrolled student, it is important that these standards be adhered to in order to maintain the current open enrollment status.
 
Students NEW TO DYSART (currently not enrolled in a Dysart school)
  • Parents with students currently not enrolled in a Dysart school, follow the instructions under New Students to DYSART using the CREATE an Open Enrollment account link
  • An auto generated email will be sent to your email address with a link that needs to be confirmed.

  • Physical capacity of the school and classrooms
