Applications for Open Enrollment in Bethel School District are now being accepted and will continue through March 31.
Open Enrollment allows current transfers to become permanent members of their schools, rather than having to seek a transfer each year.
It also allows of out-of-district students to enroll in Bethel on a space-available basis.
The Bethel School Board confirmed that for the coming school year the District could accept 239 out-of-district students at the K-5 level, 116 students at the middle school level, and 70 freshman, sophomore and junior students at Willamette High School.
Each Bethel school has some grade levels that are full and closed to additional students for the 2018-19 school year.
Families will be notified in early April about whether their Open Enrollment transfer requests have been approved.
