Students who need a NOLA-PS school placement for the 2023-2024 school year should participate in Open Enrollment, beginning on June 28 at 8:00 am.

Open Enrollment is a first-come, first-served enrollment period where families choose a school that has an available seat at their student's grade level. Families can choose a seat using an online form from a computer or phone.

K-12 Main Round

NOLA Public Schools provides students and families with the opportunity to choose a school that best suits their interests and needs through the unified enrollment process, both through the annual NOLA-PS Common Application Process (NCAP) and the year-round enrollment process.

The unified enrollment process offers students the opportunity to easily access all participating schools using a centralized process. Families who need a school for the current school year are able to enroll immediately in an available seat. Families seeking a new school for the next school year participate in the NCAP.

Mid-Year Transfers

Between October 1 and April 1, students are not permitted to transfer between schools only because of preference. When a NOLA-PS student needs to change schools mid-year, the family submits a Hardship Transfer Request or Accelerated Transfer Request.

The Hardship Transfer Categories & Requirements (Espanol) document outlines eligible hardship transfer reasons with brief descriptions and requirements for supporting documentation.
