Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools welcomes non-resident students through Minnesota’s Open Enrollment program. The decision to open or limit enrollment to families living outside the district boundaries is made on a year-to-year basis. State statute is reviewed along with student enrollment numbers and building capacity levels in the decision-making process. According to school district policy 509 and Minnesota Statute 124D.03, subd. 6.; school boards may set capacities for how many students may be served by a site and therefore can close a school to open enrollment.
If the school board limits open enrollment, a lottery will take place on scheduled and published dates. Students with siblings currently enrolled siblings or parent is a staff member of the district will receive priority in the lottery. Students will be drawn and either receive a spot in our district or receive a waitlist number. School placements are announced in May.
