Deer Park ISD’s successful Limited Open Enrollment (LOE) program will once again allow non-resident students from neighboring areas to apply for enrollment in the District.
LOE applications will be accepted beginning Friday, March 12, using an online submission process. The link to submit an application will be posted on the District website at www.dpisd.org/loe/. The link will go live at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 12.
Assistant Superintendent for Administration Steve Corry described the program as a benefit for both the District and parents. “Limited Open Enrollment is a win-win situation,” Corry explained. “By allowing non-resident students to enroll in Deer Park, we’ve given these children the opportunity to benefit from our outstanding instructional program. LOE helps the District because state funding is based on enrollment, and the District retains more of its local tax revenue for each additional student enrolled in DPISD.”
Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis to fill a limited number of available spaces. Space is available at all schools except the Early Childhood Center, San Jacinto Elementary, Deer Park Junior High and Deer Park High School-Wolters Campus.
Each application must be submitted by the parent or guardian named on the application form, and each application will be electronically stamped with the date and time of its submission. Applications will not be accepted before 4 p.m. on March 12.
Applications will be evaluated by a small panel of District administrators and approved by the campus principal. Students who are approved will be eligible to attend DPISD schools for the 2021-22 school year and beyond. Parents will receive notification of whether or not their child’s application has been accepted by the end of the current school year.
“Students who are accepted and enrolled in our schools through this program will be allowed to complete their public education in Deer Park ISD,” Corry said. “However, LOE students are expected to strictly abide by the District’s policies and rules, and any violation could result in the revocation of a student’s enrollment.”
Parents of students who enroll through the LOE program are also responsible for transporting their children to and from school.
