Open Enrollment SY22/23
Open Enrollment:
The Dysart Unified School District is proud to offer our community a choice in school enrollment. Dysart will begin accepting K-12 open enrollment applications for the 2022-2023 school year on Friday, December 10, 2021.  Parents or guardians who would like their child to attend a school outside of their residential attendance boundary for the 2022-2023 school year, must apply for open enrollment online at

Parents whose students are currently open enrolled at the school of their choice will not need to reapply. However, open enrollment status is evaluated annually based on capacity, student's grades, discipline, and attendance.

Open enrollment allows parents the opportunity to request that their children attend a Dysart school outside of their residential boundary area. This includes all Dysart Schools, including 12 K-8 elementary schools, 4 K-4 schools, 4 middle schools, Freedom Traditional Academy, and four high schools.  Information on K-8 signature programs and academies may be found by visiting Details about high school focuses and Career and Technical Education programs offered are available at 

The priority open enrollment period ends January 14, 2022. After this priority period, submitted applications will continue to be accepted and will be reviewed on a monthly basis as capacity becomes available.

Safety Reminders
  Important Safety Reminders from the Superintendent

  Dysart Parents and Guardians,

    As you are aware, there have been incidents of violence against schools around the country, and threats against schools locally. The recent school shootings are tragic, and I pray every day that       our students will be safe from such attacks. 

  Please be assured that Dysart Schools has a robust safety plan to prevent/prepare for a range of safety events ( Additionally, Dysart appreciates the extraordinary work by local police who assist with the safety of our students and staff. All threats to Dysart Schools are taken seriously and are reported to the police. 

  Recently, there has been an increase in threats against schools, as well as false reports and fabrications of potential threats, all of which are thoroughly investigated by the police using advanced threat assessment protocols. I need your help to prevent future school disruptions, and to help students understand the serious legal consequences of making threats against a school. 

  Please discuss these important points with your children:
Immediately share with a responsible adult information that could be considered threatening to you or our community. This could be a parent, teacher or school staff member.
Threats and rumors should never be forwarded or shared online, because doing so impedes and prolongs police investigations. Students involved will be disciplined and/or arrested.
Making threats or falsely reporting a threat to a school is extremely serious. These acts are a crime and a violation of our student handbook. Dysart has zero tolerance for threats against schools.      Dysart will involve police and pursue criminal charges to the fullest extent of the law.

  If you become aware of an immediate threat, please call 911.  Otherwise, call law enforcement non-emergency lines to report potential threats towards our schools or the community in Surprise (623-222-4000), El Mirage (623-933-1341), or Maricopa County (602-876-1602). 
  Another option for reporting school safety issues or concerns is through the Dysart Safe Schools Hotline (623-876-7009) or online at Additional information, resources, and school safety tips can be found on our website at 

  Our teachers, social workers, counselors, administrators, students and parents are all vital to identifying and assessing potential threats. We all have a responsibility to be vigilant and should strive to prioritize the safety of our community. It is our sincere desire to ensure our campuses are a safe place for students and employees, and we appreciate your help in this effort.
