Open Enrollment Limited for 2018-2019

IMPORTANT
 
 
New open enrollment applications for Vermilion Elementary School will not be accepted for the 2018-2019 school year due to current class sizes.  Under Ohio law, public school districts are not obligated to add services or staffing to accommodate transfer students.   
 
Students who are currently open-enrolled in Vermilion Elementary School will be given first priority to remain in the district.  Class enrollment numbers will be reviewed by August 20, 2018 to determine if new students can be accepted.  If openings are available, they will be filled on a first come-first served basis.  

Open Enrollment Options

Applications for an interdistrict transfer must be submitted to the Superintendent between mid-March and July 31st. Applications made after July 31st will receive consideration in an emergency situation as determined by the Superintendent.  Applications will be acted upon at the earliest possible date.
 
All approved transfers are in effect for one year only.  Applications for transfer must be made annually.  Should enrollment exceed the stated limits, a student accepted for transfer shall not be displaced during the school year.
 
Applicants shall be considered on a first-come, first-served basis with an assurance that native students will not be displaced and that prior participants will be given preference.  Students with handicapping conditions may be rejected for interdistrict transfer if the services described in the student’s IEP are not available. Enrollment limits shall not be exceeded.  Special programs will not be instituted to serve transfer students.  Applicants may be rejected if the racial balance of either the sending or the receiving school district would be negatively impacted.  The athletic eligibility rules of the Ohio High School Athletic Association shall be in effect.  Grade level assignments will be as determined by the Vermilion Local School District. 
 
Students may be rejected for interdistrict transfer if they have been suspended or expelled for ten (10) days or more in the current term or school year in which application is made.  A student accepted under the Interdistrict Open Enrollment Plan who is suspended or expelled for ten (10) consecutive days shall be withdrawn.
 
Students accepted for interdistrict transfer will be responsible for providing their own transportation, unless deemed practical by the administration.  Notification to the Superintendent of the home district of each student admitted under this rule shall be sent by August or as soon as possible.
