Open-enrollment policies allow a student to transfer to a public school of his or her choice. There are two basic types of open-enrollment policies.
Depending on the state, open-enrollment policies are mandatory, voluntary, or both.

|Does the state have open enrollment programs?||Yes, voluntary interdistrict in limited circumstances. Receiving school districts may admit students living in an adjoining school district. In addition, a student who resides on an Indian reservation located in two or more counties must be allowed to attend the school nearest to his or her residence, regardless of the student's resident school district.|
State law also provides a program of school choice for children in foster care.
