School Placement—Quick Reference
- Cap Out: A capped-out student lives in one school attendance area in the WDMCS but is assigned to another elementary building in our district because the kindergarten classrooms are full at the original school. Capped-out students receive free transportation.
- Voluntary Transfer: A voluntary transfer student lives in one school attendance area in the WDMCS but requests to attend a school in another WDMCS attendance area. Families agree to limited transportation options from the district when students are approved for a voluntary transfer.
- Open Enrollment: An open-enrolled student lives in one district but requests to attend another. Families agree to limited transportation options from the district when students are approved for open enrollment. Open enrollment acceptance is based on available space and subject to requirements set by state law. Open-enrolled students receive school assignments in the summer.
If you have questions about cap outs, voluntary transfers, or open enrollment, please call District Registrar Joy Zuber at 515-633-5101.
