Rhinelander School District Leaves Open Enrollment UncappedSubmitted: 01/21/2013

RHINELANDER - A Northwoods school district hopes to boost enrollment numbers. Rhinelander will do that by putting no limit on open enrollment.

Open enrollment allows families to basically choose any school district they want. Wisconsin passed a law in 2011 forcing schools with limited open enrollment to define a number. But Rhinelander can keep open enrollment unlimited as it has in the past. The administration believes it will keep overall enrollment up.

"We think we have a lot of programing here that would attract students that may be are in smaller school districts and they may want to take advanced courses, specialized courses or have access to specialized teachers. And so open enrollment can be a good thing," Dr. Roger Erdahl, Rhinelander Superintendent

The district hopes many students will want to come to Rhinelander through the program.
