• JECBD: Intradistrict Open Enrollment


    The Board and District provide students the choice to enroll in schools other than the school that serves the attendance area in which their parent/guardian resides. Procedures for admitting students to their school of choice align with State and Federal law.

    The following guidelines apply to open enrollment:

    • Resident students have priority for admission to District schools.
    • Once accepted into their school of choice, students should remain in that school until that school’s grade span ends.
    • Once accepted, parents/guardians do not have to reapply annually.
    • Procedures for admitting applicants to their school of choice include but are not limited to:
      • Review of capacity limits by grade level, school building, and educational program
      • Admission criteria that do not include or reference academic or athletic ability, English language proficiency, or any level of artistic or extracurricular skills that are not directly related to the educational program offered
    • Any transportation provided by the District for an Intradistrict Open Enrollment student will occur based upon established District transportation guidelines and within established District bus routes.

    The District notifies the Ohio Department of Education of any change to this policy within 30 days of adoption. In addition, the District maintains records verifying adherence to this policy, including complaints and how the District addresses those complaints. The District provides these records to the Ohio Department of Education upon request.
