OE Application Process

Application Process


This year, families that live within our school district boundaries will create an account on SchoolMint to apply for Open Enrollment. 

Once your parent/guardian account is created on SchoolMint, add your student(s) to the account.

Families with an incoming Kindergarten student or student that currently attends a non-SCUSD school will select that their student is not currently enrolled and manually add their student’s information to SchoolMint. This information will be verified before the application enters the lottery. 

Families with an incoming 1st – 8th grader currently at a SCUSD school will select that their student is currently enrolled and then enter their student’s first and last name, date of birth and Student ID number. This information allows SchoolMint to pull in existing information that is on file in Infinite Campus, SCUSD’s Student Information System. 

Once families register, they can apply for Open Enrollment between February 1 – 15 on the SchoolMint platform. All communications about open enrollment will be sent through SchoolMint either by email, text or both. 

SchoolMint accounts will also allow families to request to District Permits later this school year.
