In-district transfers and open enrollments

  • If you wish to have your student(s) attend a school other than the one they're assigned for 2024-25, please complete either an In-district transfer or Open enrollment form (see below). You must submit your application between Dec. 1, 2023 and Jan. 15, 2024 for priority consideration

    Any application received after January 15 will be considered late and will go into a second or third round lottery. April 1 is the deadline for an application to be considered in the second round lottery, and June 1 is the deadline for the third and final round lottery. Typically, in-district transfers for the 2024-25 school year will not be approved after the June 1 deadline.

    Please refer to the full enrollment options page for additional info and specialty schools with a different application process and timeline. Please return completed applications by mail (c/o ACS, 2727 N Ferry St., Anoka, MN 55303), email (, or fax 763-506-1213.
