Open Enrollment

  • Open Enrollment (New and Re-Enrollment)

    To the right is a downloadable booklet that outlines 2017-2018 Open Enrollment & Re-Enrollment Procedures.

    All documents will be submitted electronically. A waitlist will be generated and full applications will only be required once we know the number of seats that are available in Coppell ISD schools. All dates are in the Open Enrollment & Re-Enrollment Procedures booklet. The waitlist will be maintained throughout the school year with new Letters of Intent added to the end of the list in December. IF seats are available at the beginning of the second semester names will be taken in order from the waitlist.

    Background Information about the Open Enrollment Program
    In April, 2011, the Coppell ISD Board of Trustees approved the use of Open Enrollment for the admission of elementary students who live within the City of Coppell, but outside the attendance boundaries of CISD (an area which includes, but is not limited to Coppell Greens and Riverchase).

    The change in the district's policy is intended to create greater efficiency of operations by allowing the predetermined campuses to maximize their enrollment capacity in buildings that are already being heated, cooled, and cleaned. The move could also save a few teaching positions and generate $700,000 - $1M in additional revenue for the district depending on where the legislature sets CISD’s target revenue and the number of students who apply.

    Handbook The Coppell Independent School District has developed this booklet as a resource for parents who might be considering Open Enrollment as an option for their child. In doing so, we have tried to anticipate every possible question and scenario in an effort to assist you in your decision-making. This booklet includes policies and procedures, and some frequently asked questions…all important information to know.
