In accordance with Chapter 124D, Section 124D.03 Enrollment Options Program under Minnesota Statutes, open enrollment allows Minnesota families to enroll their children in a public school district of their choosing regardless of residential address. The law was enacted in 1988 for the 1989-90 school year in an effort to close the achievement gap. Waterville-Elysian-Morristown is an Achievement and Integration District (under Subd. 4), so the January 15th enrollment deadline is not applicable. Students can open enroll into WEM at any time.
