Open Enrollment

(Open Enrollment applications must be submitted to the resident and receiving districts.)

Transportation Assistance – Parents are responsible for transporting children open enrolled in another district.  This applies to all students including those with an IEP.  If the need for transportation as a related service is stated in the IEP, as a general rule the parent is responsible for this obligation under open enrollment.  If a child open enrolls to a district that is contiguous (borders) to the home district, and the parents’ income meets economic eligibility requirements, the family may receive a stipend for transportation or be provided transportation by the district.  Income verification must be provided to the resident district.

You may find more information by going to the Dept. of Education website at https://www.educateiowa.gov/

You may call the Paton Churdan School, (515) 389-3111, for assistance.
