Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment is an opportunity for students who reside outside of the Sunnyside Unified School District (SUSD) boundaries to enroll in SUSD schools, based on availability. Students who live within SUSD boundaries may also use open enrollment to change from their default school. Arizona state law allows students to apply for admission to any public school through open enrollment, based on available classroom space (A.R.S. § 15-816.01). Acceptance is based on the school’s grade-level and program capacity, and meeting all admission requirements.

District transportation services are not available to Open Enrollment students. Families of students under open enrollment must provide their own transportation. This includes students who are enrolled in a school that is not their school of residence. Please see the Sunnyside Unified School District Transportation Department Bus Policy for more information.
