    School Choice & Enrollment Guidelines


    To help maintain safe and healthy schools, classrooms and buses, students were assigned in-person days based on their last name. The District attempted to assign siblings and other students living in the same household to the same days.

    Parents and caregivers may request changes in assignments by following these guidelines and processes. All efforts will be made to accommodate requests for changes. Maintaining safe facilities for students and staff is paramount in making changes to assignments.

    Parent Opt-Out of Hybrid Assignment

    Parents that want their children to remain in Remote Learning, or transfer to the Virtual Academy, may contact the Office of School Choice and Enrollment at 216.838.3675 or their child’s current school to request the change in their child’s assignment. The deadline for notifying the District of your intent to Opt-Out of hybrid learning is March 19.

    Parents should note that your child’s assignment is subject to change as the District continues to monitor public health data and prepares our staff and schools for a safe return.

    Enrollment in the Virtual Academy is for the remainder of the current academic year and not a temporary or intermittent option during remote learning periods.
