Open Enrollment Information
Ohio law, along with the Franklin Local Board of Education board policy, allows parents/guardians to enroll their children in a school with in the Franklin Local School District rather than their district of residence by completing an open enrollment application and being approved by the incoming district. Board Policy also provides for Intradistrict open enrollment, which allows students to attend buildings of their choice within the Franklin Local School District, provided space is available.
Open enrollment applications are filled on a first-come, first serve basis, according to space. New students having siblings already in the Franklin Local School District will have preference over other new students, but will have applications approved in the same manner as other students.
Families may make arrangements to meet a Franklin Local School bus at specific bus stops.
High school students who transfer school districts through open enrollment must follow Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) rules for participating on athletic teams. Typically, athletic eligibility is determined by the school in which the student is attending during their 9th grade year. OHSAA rules for transfer and athletic eligibility are very specific and must be followed by law.
