Alief ISD Limited Open Enrollment Information

  • Parents of students living outside the Alief ISD attendance boundaries will have an opportunity to apply to enroll their children in selected Alief ISD schools for the 2019-2020 school year through the Limited Open Enrollment Program.

    The program will help Alief ISD because state funding is based on enrollment. For each additional student enrolled in Alief ISD, the district retains more of its local tax revenue, which in turn will help the district support its maintenance and operations, as well as continue to build innovative programs and retain highly qualified staff.
