Open Enrollment in Catalina Foothills – District 16 School District

After doing further research I found that Open Enrollment at Catalina Foothills District 16 School District begins this Saturday. You can obtain the application on-line on Saturday by going to their website at There will be a special place on the website entitled “Open Enrollment”. The school district office is not open on Saturday, but you can fax in your application on Saturday. The website will provide the fax number. If I were you, I would call them on Monday to make sure they have received it. Their phone number is 299-6446. The person who can answer any questions about open enrollment is Ilona Lund and she is at extension 123. She is on vacation but will be on hand Monday December 3rd to answer any questions. I have been told that at this point TUSD will only let students out on a case-by-case basis. I was also told that if TUSD reaches unitary status, and it is likely that will happen soon, that TUSD can no longer stop parents from open enrolling students to other Pima County school districts. Arizona is an open enrollment state. Catalina Foothills-District 16 does have room for more students; this is a good opportunity for many who prefer this school district. Certainly Canyon View Elementary, Esperero Middle and Catalina Foothills High School are closer than the TUSD schools to those of us who live at Sabino Mountain.
