    Thank you for your interest in Lakeville Area Schools!

    Per the State of Minnesota, Open Enrollment is a process that allows families who do not live within the Lakeville Area Schools district boundaries to apply to enroll their child(ren) within one of our schools.

    All families wishing to open enroll into our district should review the information below and complete the application process.


    Families wishing to open enroll for the current school year may complete Step 1 and Step 2 of the Application process at any time.

    On Feb. 27, 2024, the Lakeville Area Schools Board of Education approved K-8 attendance area adjustments model D3 after several months of designing updated school boundaries with stakeholder input. The school boundary adjustments are necessary in order to address capacity issues across K-8 schools and to open the District's newest school, Highview Elementary. Boundary adjustments for grades K-8 will take effect beginning in the 2024-25 school year, while high school boundaries remain unchanged.

    Per State statute, families seeking open enrollment can apply by following the directions on the open enrollment webpage beginning on January 1.
