FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHO MAY REGISTER A CHILD?
Only a legal parent or guardian may register a child and must appear in person.

WHAT ARE THE RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS?

Only those students whose parents/legal guardians are residents of the school district may register. Residency for school purposes means the parent/legal guardians of the student live within the school district seven days a week and perform all daily living functions, (sleeping, eating, and bathing) the majority of the time, at the residence.

WHAT DOCUMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER A STUDENT?
Please see “Registration Instructions” in student packet for a detailed list of required documentation for enrollment. Numerous documents are permitted to verify a child's age for school enrollment. These include a foreign birth certificate, a religious, hospital, or a physician's certificate showing a date of birth; an entry in a family bible; an adoption record; a baptismal record; an affidavit from a parent; previously verified school records; or any other documents permitted by law. Foreign birth certificates and similar forms of documentation will only be used to establish the age of a child for enrollment purposes.
 
See registration packet for residency requirements.

KINDERGARTEN ELIGIBILITY:
Ohio law requires that all children complete a formal kindergarten program. Children who are five years old on or before September 30th are eligible to attend kindergarten. Children must be at least six years old to enter first grade. For students whose birth date falls between October 1 and December 31 of the year they will attend school, an Early Entrance Evaluation must indicate that the student demonstrates superior functioning in the areas of ability and achievement. Contact the building principal for further information regarding Early Entrance Evaluations.
