Open Enrollment

Welcome to the Pocahontas Area Community Schools!


The Registrar looks forward to working with each family to facilitate a smooth and timely registration process.


Registering new students


Parents and guardians may pick up registration forms in the HS/MS office, Pocahontas, IA. or download and print the forms from this page.


The District also requires these documents for NEW students:

  1. Birth Certificate

  2. Passport/Visa for international students

  3. Immunization records

  4. Proof of residency, such as a utility bill, bank statement or lease agreement

  5. Current transcript for students in grades 9-12. We will accept an unofficial copy.

Per Iowa Code 282.18 open enrolling is a process that allows parents/guardians residing in an Iowa school district the option of enrolling their children into another Iowa school district. There are two deadlines (March 1 and September 1) that must be kept in mind when considering applying for open enrollment.



  • March 1: Deadline for regular open enrollment applications for the upcoming school year. There may be exceptions to the March 1st deadline which are applications based on “good cause.”


  • September 1:  Deadline for prospective kindergarten students.
