Open Enrollment is handled differently than grades 1-12.  Kindergarten students should be signed up for Kindergarten screening, which typically occurs in June. After signing up for screening, Mrs. Alysson Cotrell will email Kindergarten Registration forms to you, including the Open Enrollment Application.  Please complete all forms and return to Mrs. Cotrell prior to the screening day.  If you also have students in grades 1-12, please wait to send their applications in until May 1st.  Contact Mrs. Alysson Cotrell at (937) 465-1060, Ext. 101 or with any questions pertaining to Kindergarten screening. 

Please also attend Kindergarten Screening in your district of residence since we have a limited number of Open Enrollment spots available each year.
