Out of Attendance Area
An out of attendance area student is one who lives in one Auburn-Washburn attendance area and attends school in another. An example is a student who lives in the Auburn attendance area and attends Indian Hills Elementary.

Registration Process

All out of district and out of attendance area students must be approved by the Board of Education each year. This approval must be granted before you may enroll your student(s):

  • Out of District/Attendance Area Form
    The USD 437 Board of Education is unable to accept or approve first time (new) out of district requests because of space consideration and resource issues.

If you had one or more students complete the prior school year at an Auburn-Washburn school, please follow the steps for completing returning family registration.

If none of your students completed the prior school year at an Auburn-Washburn school, please follow the steps for completing the new family registration.

Completing registration does not guarantee permission to enroll; it is a means for collecting your information and notifying the district of your desire to attend. You must submit a completed application and be approved by the Board of Education.

Transportation Fee

Out of district/attendance area families who are approved by the Board of Education and utilize the school bus will be assessed a fee of $50 per student, per semester. This fee is capped at $200 per family per school year. If your family qualifies for free meals, and you complete the Optional Consent for Disclosure for the current school year, this fee will be waived.
