Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment allows a student to attend school tuition free in a district other than the district where his or her parents reside.  If you are interested in our district, contact the superintendent's office for more information.  Our open enrollment application period generally begins each spring for the next fall's enrollment.  Parents are responsible for transportation from a residence outside of our district to the open enrollment district school and back home.  That said, always ask as the district often times can accommodate in individual instances.  Families wishing to open enroll should contact the superintendent's office at 330-482-5352 ext. 34315 for more information regarding the application process.
