Open Enrollment Graphic  

In order to provide more students with endless opportunities for success, the Socorro Independent School District now will accept out-of-district transfer students in its schools. The new open enrollment policy was approved by the SISD Board of Trustees at a special board meeting on June 4 and will take effect immediately so that students may begin enrolling for the 2019-2020 school year.

Students who live outside of SISD boundaries now may enroll at SISD elementary, PK-8, middle, and high schools where space is available.

SISD is opening its schools to all students in the El Paso region to provide them with the high-quality education they deserve to be prepared for college, careers, and life. The new enrollment policy will allow SISD to maximize existing facilities and give more students access to the well-rounded, comprehensive education that is delivered in all 49 SISD schools.

SISD welcomes parents and students from across El Paso County to find out why Team SISD is the right choice for endless opportunities! Students in the entire region can now experience the outstanding education provided in Team SISD, including free college classes available at every high school, free Pre-K for all four-year-olds, advanced academic academies, outstanding Career and Technical Education, championship athletics, award-winning fine arts, innovative WIN Academy, state-of-the-art technology, and world-class facilities.

The enrollment policy allows for out-of-district transfer students to enroll in SISD schools where space is available. For more information, please visit
