Enrollment Procedures for O/M

Please fill out an Intent to Enroll form, found below. Submit forms by the last Friday in February.

If more forms are received than spots are available, a lottery for 2nd and/or 3rd grade will determine enrollment and waiting list order. Intent to Enroll forms received after the lottery drawing are added to the waiting list in the order received.

Students on the waiting list will remain in order through 8th grade. When a spot is available the next student on the list will be contacted and offered the spot. This will take place throughout the year.

If fewer forms are received, all students will be placed. 

Odyssey students are guaranteed a space at Magellan if they submit a Magellan Intent to Enroll form by the last Friday in February.

Magellan students have the option to choose which Appleton High School they will attend. Siblings may attend the host school if the school is open through the district's open enrollment process.
