CCSD has a strong belief that when students and their parents/guardians have choices with regard to the selection of a school, they will be more engaged and ultimately students will be more successful. While the vast majority of CCSD families are satisfied with their neighborhood schools, some families believe that a different school may more readily match the needs of their child(ren).

Open Enrollment provides parents of CCSD students with another choice. Schools with available seats in Kindergarten through Grade 12 will be advertised for the purpose of allowing parents/guardians of students who do not reside in the attendance zones to express interest in enrolling their child(ren) there.  CCSD transportation is not provided for students attending school on Open Enrollment.

Students selected to attend magnet programs/schools go through a different selection process, and should be notified by mid-March. Parents/Guardians should not apply for Open Enrollment until the notification of acceptance into a CTA/Magnet/Select school has been received. If the student is not accepted into the CTA/Magnet/Select School, Open Enrollment is still an option.

Once the child(ren) enrolls through Open Enrollment, the family is committed to remain at that school for at least one school year.

A student who enrolls in an Open Enrollment or Select School is eligible to participate in student athletics.  If a student returns to his/her zoned school or makes any other subsequent changes in enrollment, he/she would be ineligible for the remainder of that school year and for 180 school days in any sport in which his/her name appeared on a NIAA (Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association) roster during his/her attendance at the school.

Students selected to attend a school through Open Enrollment may remain at the school through the final grade served at the school. Open Enrollment does not provide for students to be promoted from one level of school to another (e.g. elementary to feeder middle school).
