(KWWL) -

WATERLOO - Parents or guardians who wish to apply for open enrollment of their child residing in an Iowa district into another Iowa school district for the 2016-2017 school year, must submit an application by March 1, 2016, with the exception of parents of kindergarten students (beginning school in the fall of 2016) and those who have good cause for late filing. 

These two groups have until September 1, 2016, to file their applications. 

Parents and guardians need to be aware of possible loss of athletic eligibility for open-enrolled students. 

Transportation to and from the new district is the responsibility of the parent, however assistance will be provided to students who qualify for free or reduced price lunches. 

Approvals are limited by the District's diversity plan guidelines. 

For Waterloo District residents, applications can be completed and turned in at the Education Service Center, 1516 Washington St., Waterloo, 50702 by March 1, 2016, or mailed with a postmark of March 1, 2016 or before. 

Applications are available at the Education Service Center or can be downloaded here
