Welcome to Alternate New Student Online Enrollment!
Let this page serve as a guide for the online enrollment process.
Follow the steps carefully and you should be done with enrollment quickly and easily!
NOTE: We have a had a couple families have issues entering data on an Android phone.
We recommend enrolling with a computer and not a mobile device.
Step 1a: Download the “Alternate Open Enrollment Form” from The Wisconsin Department of Instruction and fill it out for EACH CHILD enrolling in the RVA
Once you click on the link above, download the file to your computer.
Open the file in adobe acrobat (link to download and install below) and fill out for each child and hit save as and name the file for the child’s name.
alternate option: You may also print as may paper copies as you need and fill them out, then scan them completed into your computer.
Continue for as many children as you are enrolling and save each as their own file.
At the end you should have a document for each of your children that has their unique information.
Remember where you saved them because you will need to upload them during the enrollment process.
Because you didn’t register during the standard open enrollment window from February through April and you don’t live in one of our consortium districts we need you to fill out an “Alternate Open Enrollment Form” for EACH student you are enrolling in the RVA.
Watch video for detailed explanation of this step!
Choosing Courses for High School
If your student(s) are in
PreK-8, skip to Step 2!
If you have a student who is entering High School, you will need to sit down with them and decide what courses they would like to request. You can find the course catalog here: https://ruralvirtual.org/course-descriptions. You may want to take note of what classes your student is interested in, because later in the registration process you will be asked to list your course selections.
Here is a sample of what you will be filling out later. Note that courses with boxes containing x’s are required in most cases. For example in 9th grade you may only request what type of Math you would like and a few electives.
Do your best filling this out and don’t worry if you make any mistakes. We use this form to get an idea of your initial course selections. A High School Counselor will reach out to you to finalize your course selections and schedules after you complete your new student online enrollment for all your students in the RVA.
