School Choice Enrollment

Students who wish to attend a school other than their neighborhood school—the one assigned to them by geographic boundaries—may apply to transfer to another school by submitting an Open Enrollment Application at the school of their choice. A one-time $5.00 processing fee will be charged at the time of application, payable to the requested school.

In Logan City School District, there are two enrollment periods:

Early Open Enrollment is the recommended time to enroll for the next school year.

  • Applications submitted December 1 through the third Friday in February each year.
  • Approved transfer requests shall become effective the following school year,beginning on the first day of school.

Late/Provisional Enrollment is generally, but not always, for the current school year.

  • Applications submitted anytime.
  • Approved transfer requests shall become effective the following school year or thecurrent year, as indicated on the request form.

Requests will be accepted or denied on a first-come, first-served basis contingent on:

  • Space must be available in the school, grade, and program requested. Spaceavailability is defined by the Utah State Office of Education.
  • The student has not committed serious infractions of the law or school rules,including rules of the requested school/district.
  • The student has not been guilty of chronic misbehavior which would, if it were tocontinue after the student was admitted, endanger persons or property, causeserious disruptions in the school, or place unreasonable burdens on school's staff.
  • The school administrator may allow provisional enrollment of a nonresident studentwith prior behavior problems when conditions have been set under which thestudent would be permitted to enroll or continue.

Students admitted to an out of area school may remain enrolled without renewed applications for attendance in subsequent years. Permit applications will be saved in the student’s cumulative file.

The school administrator shall provide written notification of acceptance or rejection to the student's parent/guardian and the LCSD Director of Student Services on or before March 31 for early open enrollment requests and within 2 weeks of the District’s receipt of the application for Late/Provisional enrollment applications for the current school year.
