Registration Process

The registration process is a 4 step process that begins online. Parents or legal guardians are responsible for providing all required documents to complete the registration process. Please be aware that once registration is complete, it is a minimum of two days before the student will actually attend.

Kindergarten Students

If your child will be 5 years old on or before September 30th of the current school year, he/she is eligible to start kindergarten for the current school year. View the Kindergarten Guide

Preschool and Peer Model Program

The program is primarily designed for children with disabilities; however, typically developing preschool age children who enjoy a well-rounded, developmentally appropriate preschool experience may apply to serve as peer models for the students with disabilities. Click on the appropriate grade level above to start the registration process.

Transfers

OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) rules stipulate that when a voluntary transfer to another high school is granted to a student in grades 9-12, the student shall be ineligible for all contests (including all scrimmages, preview/jamboree/Foundation games) until after the first 50 percent of the maximum allowable regular-season contests in those sports in which the student participated during the 12 months immediately preceding this transfer have been completed. The realignment of boundaries establishes athletic eligibility.

Hardship / Emergency Transfer Requests

Transfer Request forms will be available online, January 27 – March 6, 2020, and they will also be available in all school buildings and at the District’s Central Office.
