In-District Transfers (School Choice)

In-District Transfers (School Choice)

If you are considering having your child attend a school within the district that is not your neighborhood school, you must complete an In-District Transfer/School Choice Request.  If you are interested in more than one school, please fill out a separate application for each school you are requesting.  The school choice application period is January 1 – March 1, 2015.  Late applications will not be accepted. 

Please Note: 
  • Whittier Elementary and Butler Middle Schools are closed for In-District Transfers/School Choice. 
  • If you are considering an In-District transfer to attend a specialty school/program such as the Dual Language Program,  Waukesha STEM Academy, FLIGHT, QUEST, INSPIRE, Waukesha Engineering Preparatory Academy, and the Waukesha Academy of Health Professions there is a separate application that will need completion in addition to the In-District transfer paperwork. 

Approval & Commitment Letters & Denial notices will be sent out the last week of March for middle and high schools.  Elementary notices will be mailed home around the first week of April.  Please be sure to sign and return your letter of commitment by the date listed to guarantee your seat at the school of choice.

If your child is not currently enrolled in the School District of Waukesha, please go to the Enrollment Office located at 222 Maple Ave, 53186, to start the enrollment process.  All enrollment information will be sent to the school of choice once you have been approved to transfer.  This does not need to be done prior to filling out the In-District Transfer/ School Choice application but does need to be done during the month of January.

If you do not currently reside in Waukesha and are not currently enrolled in Waukesha through the Open Enrollment program, please fill out an open enrollment application.  The Open Enrollment application period is February 2 - April 30, 2014.  Please click the link below to fill out an open enrollment application.
