Waconia Public Schools serves the communities of Waconia, Minnetrista, Victoria, St. Bonifacius, and New Germany. Families that live outside the district 110 boundary may apply for Open Enrollment into our district. Use the district boundary map link to determine if your address is located in the district.
How to Apply
Complete the Open Enrollment Application and return it to the superintendent's office. Once approved you will receive a copy of your approved application, and the school will receive a copy. Note: Elementary age students will be tentatively assigned to one of three elementary schools (see Kindergarten through Grade 5 information below)
Kindergarten through Grade 5
Waconia Public Schools has three elementary schools that serve students in grades K-5. The district works to maintain similar class sizes at all three buildings: Laketown Elementary; Southview Elementary; Bayview Elementary. Students receive building assignments based on their residential address.
Tentative Building Assignments for New Students in Kindergarten through Grade 5
Open enrolled students will receive their approved application with a building assignment based on their residential address. These assignments are tentative and may change as the school year approaches and enrollment numbers become finalized. Depending on how many students are in each grade level in each building, the district may need to balance class sizes. If this is the case, families will be notified in August if their building assignment will change for the upcoming school year.
Change of Elementary Building Assignment
A student’s elementary building assignment could change prior to the start of any year in a student’s K-5 years. Depending on how many students are in each grade level in each building, the district may need to balance class sizes. If this is the case, families will be notified in August if their building assignment will change for the upcoming school year.
The district does not provide transportation for nonresident students. Families may contact the bus company to inquire if there is an in-district stop nearby.
