Who do I contact with questions?

If you have any questions about open enrolling with the MAPS district, please contact the district office at 715.536.4581 or visit their website:

IMPORTANT NOTE: By Wisconsin State Statute, parents are only allowed to apply ONE time in a specific school district for enrollment through the open-enrollment process; therefore, if you apply during the regular open-enrollment period and are denied due to space, you are not allowed to use the alternative open-enrollment process to re-apply, even if there is space available during any given school year. If you have questions about this process, please contact the Department of Public Instruction.

If you have any questions regarding Wisconsin's open-enrollment process, please contact the DPI. If you have questions regarding a submitted open-enrollment application, please contact the MAPS' district administrative office at 715.536.4581.
