Open Enrollment for 2024–2025 School Year

Open enrollment enables Arizona students to attend a public school whether or not they live within the school or district boundaries.

At Riverside Elementary School District, we welcome parents/legal guardians and students to experience a high caliber of STEM2 education.

The following conditions apply to the open enrollment program:

  • An open enrollment application must be completed.
  • Open enrollment is subject to the capacity limit established for the school, program, and/or grade level.
  • Student transportation will be the responsibility of the parent/legal guardian.
  • Providing false information on this form may result in the request being denied or admission revoked.
  • Prompt and regular attendance. 
  • Adherence to district and school rules. 

If the student fails to maintain one or more of the above standards or violates the rules and regulations, the principal, superintendent, or the superintendent’s designee may cancel the variance to attend the requested school at the time of the violation. Long-term suspension and/or expulsion may warrant immediate revocation of a variance.

Maricopa Institute of Technology STEM2 Magnet Jr. High has additional applications and/or requirements that must be met prior to acceptance.

Admission Guidelines

Open enrollment applications must be completed by the individual requesting enrollment and must be signed by the parent/legal guardian and student. Consideration for admittance will be determined by the school administration.

Applicants must submit open enrollment applications on or before February 1 of each year to meet the priority deadline to be considered for open enrollment during the following school year. Schools will accept applications through the school year, as capacity allows.


The district shall notify the applicant in writing by May 15 whether the applicant has been accepted, placed on a waiting list pending the availability of capacity, or rejected.
