Open Enrollment / School Choice / Tuition Waiver
Parents have a right to request their child(ren) attend a different school district other than where they reside through the Wisconsin Open Enrollment Program. The Wisconsin Open Enrollment (school choice) Program allows students living outside the Howards Grove School District to enroll in our schools without paying tuition, if space is available, and subject to certain other restrictions. The parent/guardian is responsible for student transportation.
Any parent/guardian interested in having their child(ren) attend the elementary, middle, or high school in Howards Grove should contact the building principal to arrange for a time to tour the facility and discuss the educational programs provided to students in the Howards Grove School District. The building principals and corresponding telephone numbers are:
- Northview Elementary School
Sarah Ellinger- firstname.lastname@example.org
- Howards Grove Middle School
Angie Houston- email@example.com
- Howards Grove High School
Jon Hess- firstname.lastname@example.org
