Open Enrollment

OPEN ENROLLMENT FOR THE 23/24 SCHOOL YEAR IS NOW CLOSED. Open Enrollment requests are no longer being accepted for the 23/24 school year.

PUSD believes that students should have the opportunity to attend their home school (i.e. resident school by the home address) upon enrollment in the Pleasanton Unified School District.

In order to align with that belief, the PUSD Board of Trustees passed a new Board Policy (BP) 5116.1 on Dec. 8, 2022. At that time, a new Administrative Regulation (AR) 5116.1 was also reviewed and is now available to the community.

This new board policy and administrative regulation outlines the new process for Intradistrict Transfers/Open Enrollment.

As of Jan. 1, 2023, the following will be in place.

AR 5116.1 — Intradistrict Open Enrollment:

Except for transfers for victims of a violent crime and from a "persistently dangerous school," the following procedures shall apply to intradistrict open enrollment:

  1. The Superintendent or designee shall identify those schools which may have space available for additional students. A list of those schools and open enrollment applications shall be available at each school site, the district office, and on the district's website.
  2. After the enrollment priorities have been applied in accordance with Board policy, if there are more requests for a particular school than there are spaces available, a random drawing shall be held from the applicant pool. A waiting list shall be established to indicate the order in which applicants may be accepted if openings occur during the year. Late applicants shall not be added to the waiting list for the current year but shall instead wait for a subsequent lottery.

For the 2024-25 school year, the following schools are considered “not at capacity” and are the school sites available for Open Enrollment Requests (A Student must be currently enrolled in PUSD to apply for an open enrollment):

PLEASE NOTE: A student must be enrolled in PUSD prior to completing an Open Enrollment Request. The priority open enrollment period for TK-K and all new students enrolling in PUSD opens on March 1, 2024.
