A small school with big opportunities, BCLUW consistently demonstrates itself as a high-achieving school district. With an additional wide variety of athletics, fine arts, the Leader in Me Program, multiple STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programs infused into the classroom, and other extracurriculars such as Art Club, Science Club, and FFA, there are extensive opportunities for students to be involved as a team, learn beyond the classroom, and become leaders within the school and community.

Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, the Iowa Legislature removed the due date for applying. Therefore, parents can apply for open enrollment to BCLUW at any point before or during the school year (although it will still likely take several days to process paperwork, review records, create class schedules, etc.).

The preschool program at BCLUW is not subject to open enrollment or any residency requirements. Parents residing in any Iowa school district can apply for tuition-free admission for their incoming 4-year-old child(ren) to the preschool program at BCLUW by contacting the elementary.

Open enrollment applications and directions can be found below or picked up at the district Administrative Office (inside the BCLUW High School). Completed forms should be submitted to both your resident district and BCLUW.

No. While there are typically small charges in any school for things like textbook fees/registration and meals, there is no fee or parent-paid tuition for open enrolling to another district.

Yes, definitely. Our building principals at BCLUW would be happy to visit with you about educational programs and facilities, show you around, and help answer any questions you may have.

That's OK. In Iowa, a parent/guardian always has the right to "end" their child's open enrollment at any time and return to a school in their district of residence.

With open enrollment, the parent/guardian is responsible for arranging transportation; either to the school building or to an approved bus pickup/drop-off location within the BCLUW school district.

If you have further questions about opportunities at BCLUW or open enrollment, please contact Superintendent Ben Petty at 641-366-2819 or bpetty@bcluw.org.
