Open Enrollment FAQs:

1. I currently have a transfer to a GMSD school; do I need to reapply to stay at the school?
No, applications for GMSD transfers are good through that school’s exit year.  Each year district administration reviews existing transfers in relation to capacity, staffing, and zoning.  Annually, families currently on a transfer will recieive communication notifying them of their enrollment status. Unless your student is currently in the school’s exit year grade (i.e. 5th grade at Farmington, Forest Hill, or Dogwood, or 8th grade at Houston Middle or Riverdale), you do not need to reapply. If your student is in the school’s exit year grade, you will need to apply for an Open Enrollment transfer to the school you would like to attend. 

2. How and when will I know if my transfer was approved to attend a GMSD school?
After Open Enrollment applications are processed, a letter or an email of approval or denial will be sent to the address or email address listed when completing the application.

3. I don’t live in Germantown; can I still apply to attend a GMSD School?
Due to current student numbers and available space, transfer approvals will be limited. The following schools will not be accepting NEW, NON-RESIDENT transfers:
-Dogwood Elementary
-Farmington Elementary
-Riverdale K-5
(This does not include Germantown staff members' children)

4. If I currently have a transfer to a GMSD school and I’m in my exit year grade, am I guaranteed to receive a transfer to the next GMSD School I would like to attend?
No, unfortunately, we can’t guarantee a transfer to any GMSD schools. Transfers will be awarded based on board policy and capacity of the school.
