Open Enrollment

All schools in the Vallivue School District offer an excellent education for students. The district is committed to prepare each individual for success now and in the future through the most positive, effective, and economical education and fostering strong relationships between parents and teachers.

We recognize that some assigned school attendance areas may not meet the needs of families in our district, and some families live outside of our district boundaries and want to choose our schools for their children. 

Idaho law (33-1402) allows us to offer an opportunity to apply for a change of school through open enrollment. 

New laws regarding open enrollment take effect July 1, 2023.
