North Dakota Century Code 15.1-31
The North Dakota open enrollment law establishes an application period whereby parents can apply to enroll their children in a district other than the district of residence.
If a school board decides to accept students under the provisions of open enrollment, it must establish policies for the acceptance or rejection of applications on the basis of the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or school building. The North Dakota School Boards Association will provide assistance regarding the establishment and revision of these policies.
The school board of a district may decide to not accept students from other districts under the provisions of open enrollment by formally adopting a motion indicating this intent.
Application procedures and guidelines are further explained in the Open Enrollment application.
