Area public and private schools are trying to attract new students as the open enrollment period continues in the state. Eight weeks remain for the open enrollment period that began on February 4. Open enrollment in Wisconsin is available to all students enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade. Marc Vandenhouten, principal for St. Mary’s Elementary School in Luxemburg, says all the Door and Kewaunee County schools offer great opportunities for students.
Open enrollment, which has been available since 1998 in the state, ends on April 30. An alternate open enrolment is offered to start on July 1.
