Ohio law, along with the Mad River Board of Education board policy, allows parents/guardians to enroll their children in a school within the Mad River School District rather than their district of residence by completing an open enrollment application and being approved by the incoming district. By policy of the Federal government, students residing in the Fairborn School District cannot attend the Mad River School District thru Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment can not be used for Preschool, only K-12 grade.
Open enrollment applications are filled on a first-come, first serve basis, according to space.
Families may make arrangements to meet a Mad River School bus at specific bus stops (if space is available).
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.
Forms can be picked up in the Student Services office located at: 801 Old Harshman Rd. 8:30AM - 3:30PM M-F
