Date Introduced 03/06/2024

Current law permits a student to apply for open enrollment in
particular programs and schools within the student's district and in
schools and programs in other school districts. The bill requires the state
board of education (state board) to adopt a model policy on or before
December 15, 2024, to promote clarity and consistency for parents,
custodians, and legal guardians as they assess school enrollment options.
The model policy must include timelines and processes for the school or
program application, timelines for student notification of acceptance or
denial determinations, and open enrollment transparency measures for
student eligibility, school capacity, and transportation resources. The bill
allows school districts to adopt, publicize, and implement policies and
procedures for open enrollment that are consistent with the state board
model policy.
The bill requires the department of education to annually report to
the general assembly, governor, and state board on the number and
geographic location of students exercising an open enrollment option and
on open enrollment application denials.
