Open Enrollment

Thank you for choosing Bloomington Public Schools. We're excited to welcome you to the BPS community!

Families who do not reside in Bloomington but wish to attend a Bloomington school can register by completing the open enrollment process. We strongly encourage new families to contact the principal of the school you're interested in attending and arrange to visit the school for a tour. We make every effort to accommodate enrollment choices, depending on available space in a school. 

Once accepted for enrollment, the student does not have to reapply each year. Transportation for out of district students must be provided by the family.

If you live in Bloomington and would like to transfer schools, please refer to the intra-district transfer page.
