Open Enrollment

The open enrollment period for the 2021-2022 academic year is now open. Applications can be found below.

The Ithaca City School District provides the opportunity for families residing within the Ithaca School District to apply for their child(ren) to attend a school within the district other than the one assigned by geography (see Board Policy 5110.2). Open Enrollment is offered only to ICSD resident students who are currently enrolled in their home school.

A new application is required if a request is being made for a new, non-home school placement. Open Enrollment into a particular school is dependent upon grade-level space availability and staffing considerations at the requested building. Once applications have been approved, students are not required to reapply. Parents/caregivers must provide all transportation to and from their children's open enrolled school.

Completed applications are due to Amy Augustine at 400 Lake Street no later than June 4, 2021, and will be reviewed after this deadline. Written notifications of acceptance or denial will begin in mid-June but could be made as late as the end of August.

Please note: Lehman Alternative Community School is not considered in the Open Enrollment process.
