At Monday night's school board meeting the Bismarck Public School Board voted to not cap enrollment at 13 of the elementary schools.
Capping would've put students not necessarily into their closest neighborhood school but the elementary school in which there was room.
Central Registration has been busy this summer, registering anywhere between 20 and 30 families a day since the fourth of July; and putting an ease on capping enrollment is a relief for many parents.
"Calling and scheduling appointments with me, is their child going to be able to attend the school they're zoned for, another question with capping was are they going to have one child in one school and another child in another, because their class has been capped," Kari Leier said.
Leier says that 90% of the families she's been registering this summer are from out of state.
And for those who want to get their elementary child in their neighborhood school, they only have about a week left to do so.
"It's been good to hear that they're not going to cap the schools, but on the other hand we do have schools that are quite full, so once kids register now after the beginning of the school year if we don't have room, we'll have to place them in a classroom that does have room available," Leier said.
The first day of school in Bismarck is August 23rd.
