Open Enrollment

The School District of New Berlin participates in the Wisconsin Open Enrollment program. This program allows parents to apply for their children to attend school districts other than that in which they reside.

Parents must submit online applications to the non-resident district during the application period beginning in February for the following school year. For school year 2015-2016, the Open Enrollment application window will open at midnight on Feb. 2, 2015, and continue through 4:00 p.m. on April 30, 2015. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason. For further information concerning Open Enrollment (or to access the online application when it is available), visit the Department of Public Instruction website or contact DPI at (888) 245-2732.

There is no tuition cost to parents for participation. Parents of open-enrolled students may be charged the same fees as resident students.


Parents are responsible for transporting their children to and from school.

New Berlin does NOT have a 4K program.
