MONROE LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
INTERDISTRICT OPEN ENROLLMENT
For the 2020-2021 school year the Monroe Board of Education shall permit any student from any district in the state of Ohio to apply for enrollment in the district’s schools free of any tuition obligation, provided that openings are available and that all procedures as outlined in the administrative regulations are met. We will accommodate as many students as possible. However, space is limited. Monroe may not be able to accept new students for certain grade levels due to the district’s anticipated enrollment next school year.
Applications for students wishing to apply will be accepted beginning April 15, 2020, at 8:00 AM at the Board of Education Office at 500 Yankee Road. Proof of residency is now required to be submitted yearly for open enrolled students. This requirement can be met by submitting a copy of an energy or water bill dated within 60 days of the date the application is submitted.
Please note: New students are not accepted through open enrollment after the school year has begun.
Guidelines for the transfer of students are consistent with the O.R.C. 3313.98, and also the Monroe Local Schools Open Enrollment Policy 5113. The complete policy and administrative guidelines may be found on our website.
The number of openings in a particular program for students from other Ohio districts will be determined by optimum size for a particular program, classroom/school building, or grade level, which is the number of students that can be accommodated without increasing District expenditures for staff or equipment.
- At no time will a resident student be denied enrollment in a grade, building, or program due to established capacities having been reached through inter-district open enrollment.
- If the grade level capacity is reached, open enrollment will not occur for that grade level for that year.
- The parent/guardian will be responsible for providing transportation to and from the regularly assigned bus stops or pick-up points of the Monroe Local School District.
- Each open enrolled student must file a Request to Return form yearly with updated information.
