How To Apply (Current School Year - 2018-19 School Year)

Step 1: Open the Alternative Enrollment Application.

Step 2: Complete the application. We encourage families to choose “Best Interest of the Student” as the reason for looking to apply for alternative enrollment. Please include a statement as to why you believe it is in your student’s best interest to enroll into WVL, as well as explain why you believe your student would do well in a virtual school setting. We ask that high school applicants submit a copy of their most recent high school transcript. We use transcripts for scheduling purposes only, should your student be accepted for enrollment.

Step 3: Submit your application. Submit your Alternative Application, statement of “best interest” and high school transcripts (if applicable) to Ann Baumann, District Registrar, by email, mail or fax to:

Step 4: Processing your application. It can take up to 20 days for your application to be approved. Both WVL and your resident school district will need to approve your application before your student is considered enrolled. You will receive an approval or denial email and letter from Ann Baumann once the application process is complete.

Step 5: Find success! Your student will be assigned a Student Learning Advocate (SLA). Parents, learning coaches and students will work together with their SLA to create a customized learning plan. Your SLA will be available to help answer questions along the way.

Request information

Who can apply?

Enrollment at Wisconsin Virtual Learning is open to any Wisconsin residents in 4k-12th grade. The only limitation applies when to early childhood education or 4K: the child’s resident school district must offer the same type of program and the child must be eligible for that program. Please note: Residents of the Northern Ozaukee School District may enroll at any time throughout the year.  

Alternative Enrollment

A student may apply for enrollment at any time throughout the year if your child meets at least one of seven criteria as outlined by the Department of Public Instruction. Under what circumstances may parents apply using the alternative procedure?

There are seven circumstances under which a parent may submit an alternative application:

  1. The pupil’s resident school district determines that the pupil is a victim of a violent crime.
  2. The pupil is or has been homeless in the current or preceding school year.
  3. The pupil has been the victim of repeated bullying or harassment that has been reported to the resident school district and continues in spite of action taken.
  4. The pupil’s place of residence has changed due to the parent’s military orders.
  5. The pupil moved into this state within the past 30 days.
  6. The pupil’s place of residence has changed as a result of a court order or custody agreement, or the pupil was placed in a foster home or with a person other than the pupil’s parent, or removed from a foster home or the home of a person other than the pupil’s parent.
  7. The pupil’s parent and the nonresident and resident school districts agree that attending the nonresident school district is in the best interests of the pupil.

We thank you for your interest in our school and look forward to working with you and your student.

Your completed application and supporting documents should be submitted to Wisconsin Virtual Learning by fax, mail, or email to Wisconsin Virtual Learning.
