The Learning Community of Douglas & Sarpy Counties invites families to consider open enrollment for the 2016-17 school year.

Families of students in kindergarten through 12th grade can apply to schools with available space. Students with siblings attending the same school during the 2016-17 school year receive first priority, followed by those contributing to socioeconomic diversity.

Families interested in free transportation should apply for open enrollment to find out if they qualify.

Families are encouraged to tour schools before applying. The deadline to apply is March 15.

Information and applications can be found at LearningCommunityDS.org/OpenEnrollment.
