Out of District - Interested in Open Enrollment?

  • The Oregon Department of Education has indicated that Open Enrollment has ended and will no longer be an option to enroll.

    What this means for districts and students:  

    • 2018-19 was the last school year for students to transfer through open enrollment.  
    • Districts should not go through the open enrollment procedure in the spring of 2019 and cannot enroll students through open enrollment in 2019-20.
    • Any student who has transferred through open enrollment before the sunset remains a resident of the new district. ORS 339.133 contains language stating that the legislative ruling does not affect the status of a person who transferred through open enrollment prior to the 2019-20 school year.  

Out of District Student?

    • There are TWO options for Out of District High School students to enroll in Lake Oswego School District for the 2019-20* school year:
      • Obtain an Inter-District Transfer from your resident district 
      • Pay tuition 
    • Elementary and Middle School Out of District students are NOT eligible for enrollment 
    • For more information, refer to the Non-Residents of LOSD page

     Please obtain release information from your resident district prior to contacting us.

    *The School Board typically releases guidelines for eligibility for Out of District enrollment in December of each year. The website has been updated for 2019-20 based on the outcome of the School Board meeting held on January 14, 2019.
