FAQ: What school district should I put down?
If you are on the first page of the application, please select the school district you currently live in. They ask this question to help verify where you live and which state program you should apply for.

You will need to provide the following documentation to Milwaukee Lutheran before the close of that open enrollment period via fax (414-461-2733) or scanned and send to the Choice Department

  • RESIDENCY DOCUMENTATION – Current (dated within 3 months of application date) water, gas, electric, cable, satellite, landline phone bill, paystub, W-2, or government correspondence. Documentation of address and applicant name must match EXACTLY to that given on the online application.
  • INCOME DOCUMENTATION - Some families must also submit income documents, which must be submitted before the deadline.  DPI will list those required documents in the confirmation email you receive from them.

You will receive an email from us after the close of each open enrollment period stating whether you have received a seat, have a spot on the waitlist, or have been denied a seat, along with the reason for that denial.
