Attending Red Rock School District schools as an open enrollment pupil is conditioned subject to capacity limitations. The superintendent shall annually estimate how much excess capacity exists to accept transfer pupils. The estimate of excess capacity shall be made for the school, grade level, program, and in the case of a special needs student, the existing capacity to provide the services needed by such student. Excess capacity means capacity beyond that needed to service district resident pupils within assigned school attendance areas, pupils who have been issued certificates of educational convenience, and other pupils whose attendance is mandated by law.

**Resource Program - Students in this program are generally developing self-care skills and behavior that is comparable to same-age peers. However, they need specialized instruction in a specific aspect of their day at school (i.e., reading, writing, math, attending to instruction, speech). These students do not need paraprofessional support.

***Life Skills Program - Students in this program generally display significant delays in self-care. Due to those delays, these students generally need paraprofessional support to assist with daily living skills in addition to academics (i.e. eating, safely moving around campus, managing their behavior).

Early Bird Open Enrollment Lottery Application

Open enrollment students will be offered placement subject to capacity (school, grade level, program, and/or services).

The early bird open enrollment lottery application window for SY 24–25 will open November 1, 2023. The deadline for submitting applications is January 30, 2024, at midnight.

  • If an application is received after January 30, it will still be accepted, and the student will be considered if an opening becomes available.
  • If the number of applications exceeds capacity limitations, a random early bird lottery selection will be made on January 31, 2024.
  • Selections will be based on the enrollment priorities set out in Governing Board Policy JFB - Open Enrollment.
  • Families who have been selected for open enrollment will be notified by March 1, 2024.
  • Applications received after the January 30 deadline will not be included in the random lottery selection process; however, placement may still be offered.
  • An open enrollment waiting list is maintained for each school.

Students who are currently enrolled, and attending Red Rock School through open enrollment, do not need to reapply for open enrollment here! Continuing open enrollment applications will be made available to you.
