What is Late Enrollment?

Late Enrollment gives families who are new to New Orleans, missed the OneApp school application window, or who need to change their school placement an opportunity to enroll in a school with open seats. Most schools fill during the Main and Round 2 OneApp application rounds, meaning that options may be limited during Late Enrollment.

  • July 15-19: Grades K-12 ONLY

  • Professional Arts & Sciences Building, 2601 Gentilly Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70122

What do I need to bring?

  • Families must provide the following to receive a placement at Late Enrollment:
    • Parent I.D.
    • Proof of residency (utility bill, rental lease agreement / mortgage, property tax notice, etc.)
    • Final report card
    • Student birth certificate
    • Proof of income (PK4 ONLY)

What Else do I Need to Know?

  • K-12 families will need to provide guardian identification, proof of residency, final report card, and student birth certificate.
  • PK4 families will need to provide guardian identification, 2 proofs of residency, and student birth certificate, and proof of income.
  • Enrollment services for children ages 6 weeks – 3 years will resume in August, after Head Start and Early Head Start Centers return from summer intercession.
  • Families should not arrive on campus before 8 AM.
  • Seat availability will be posted here daily. Please reference this before planning your visit. We cannot guarantee seats will be available in your child’s grade at your most preferred school.
  • If you are satisfied with your Main Round or Round 2 placement, you do not need to participate in Late Enrollment. Please register at your assigned school before the registration deadline.


Seat Availability

In order to help families better plan their visit to Late Enrollment, we’ll be offering a snapshot of seat availability at the start of each weekday throughout Late Enrollment. Seat availability in all schools by grade group will be posted here after the release of Round 2 results.

Availability is based on student enrollment as of the time at which it is posted and is extremely temporary and subject to change. There is no guarantee that the seat availability indicated in this report will be accurate upon your arrival at Late Enrollment. Students are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that Late Enrollment is for public schools that participate in the OneApp process. Non-public schools and non-participating schools should be contacted directly regarding seat availability and admissions processes.

Early Childhood Applicants | Open Enrollment, May 8 – June 26

Open Enrollment is an opportunity for eligible early-childhood aged children (ages 6 weeks to 4 years) who did not participate in the OneApp Main Round to get added to a waitlist or take an available seat. Check your eligibility for participating programs at oneapp.force.com.

Who should participate in Open Enrollment?

  • Eligible families new to New Orleans
  • Eligible families who either did not participate in the Main Round, or did not verify their eligibility

Families who submitted an application and verified their eligibility during the Main Round DO NOT need to participate in Open Enrollment. Your child either has a placement, or has been added to up to three waitlist(s) of programs listed on your Main Round application.

To see your placement or waitilists visit your OneApp Parent Portal account at oneapp.force.com. Detailed instructions and current waitlist status will be available on your Parent Portal account. Families can also change waitlist choices in the parent portal.

Please note:

  • If you are satisfied with your waitlists choices, you should not participate in Open Enrollment. You will be contacted via phone and email should a seat become available for your child at your waitlisted program(s).
  • If you would like to change your waitlisted program(s), you may do so from your Parent Portal account. If you choose to change your waitlists, you will be added to the back of the waitlist for non Head Start programs. Please consider carefully before changing your waitlisted programs.
  • Log into your Parent Portal account at oneapp.force.com for information on your child’s waitlisted program(s).

How to participate in Open Enrollment?

    • Log-in to oneapp.force.com, click and complete the “Pre-K and Head Start Eligibility Check.”
  • Step 2: Verify by submitting your documents

      • For Head Start, Early Head Start and NOEEN programs, you will add waitlist choices through the parent portal and will be contacted if a seat is available and your child is next
      • For PK 3 and PK 4 Non-Head Start programs you can take an open seat or get added to waitlists.

*PK3 & PK4 non-Head Start seats are first-come, first-served. Some programs and grades will not have open seats. Check Seat Availability to review options and grades with remaining open seats. 

How do I add waitlist choices? Early Childhood families can manage their child’s waitlisted programs through the OneApp Parent Portal (oneapp.force.com). Log into your account to add, remove, or change your child’s waitlisted programs.

  • Log into your Parent Portal account, click on the Pre-K tab, and scroll to your Family Profile. If your child is verified for Early Childhood programs, a button called “Manage Waitlist” will appear next to your child’s name.
  • Click on “Manage Waitlist” and follow the instructions to add, remove, or change your child’s waitlisted programs.
  • If your child is actively enrolled in a participating Early Childhood program for the 2019-2020 school year, you may add them to 1 waitlist.
  • If your child is not yet enrolled in a participating Early Childhood program for the 2019-2020 school year, you may add them to up to 3 waitlists.
  • Programs with open seats are not available as waitlist options. Schools with open seats will not display in the Parent Portal. Verified families can take open seats in PK 3 and PK 4 non Head Start programs by visiting a family resource center.
