Open Enrollment- https://dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment The inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend public school in a school district other than the one in which they reside. 

Home-based Private Education Programs -https://dpi.wi.gov/sms/home-based “Home-based private educational program” means a program of educational instruction provided to a child by the child’s parent or guardian or by a person designated by the parent or guardian. An instructional program provided to more than one family unit does not constitute a home-based private educational program. 

Attendance in the public school by pupils enrolled in a home-based private education program is allowed for a pupil who has met the standards for admission to the course and may attend up to 2 courses at a public school in the district during each school semester if the school board determines that there is sufficient space in the classroom. Also, a pupil enrolled in a home-based private educational program and attending a public school under this section may attend one course in each of 2 school districts, but may not attend more than 2 courses in any semester. 

In addition, the law provides for participation in interscholastic athletics and extra-curricular activities to a pupil who resides in the school district and is enrolled in a home-based private educational program. Students may participate in interscholastic athletics in the school district on the same basis and to the same extent that the pupils enrolled in the school district participate. The home-based educational program in which the pupil is enrolled shall provide the school board with a written statement that the pupil meets the school’s requirements for participation in interscholastic athletics based on age and academic and disciplinary records. No person may provide a false statement under this paragraph. 

A school board may charge a pupil who participates in interscholastic athletics or extracurricular activities as permitted under this section participation fees, including fees for uniforms, equipment, and musical instructions, on the same basis and to the same extent that it charges these fees to a pupil who is enrolled in the school district. 

Additional Educational Options For students who reside in the Union Grove Joint School District #1 but who are enrolled in and attending a private school or home-based private educational program include the following: 

▪ Such students have the opportunity to attend summer school classes/programs offered in the district. 

Special Needs Scholarship Program – https://dpi.wi.gov/sms/special-needs-scholarship The Union Grove Joint School District #1 hereby acknowledges this section to serve as our required notification to the parents/guardians of each student in our District who have a disability enrolled in our school district of the new Special Needs Scholarship Program. 

The Special Needs Scholarship Program (SNSP) allows a student with a disability, who meets certain eligibility requirements, to receive a state-funded scholarship to attend a participating private school.
