Ohio law, along with the Franklin Local Board of Education board policy, allows parents/guardians to enroll their children in a school within 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.
A parent or guardian residing in an Ohio school district may enroll their child in a school in the Franklin Local School District without paying tuition, provided they comply with open enrollment deadlines and procedures and their student is accepted by the Franklin Local School District. This is called Interdistrict open enrollment. Intradistrict open enrollment involves students attending buildings within our school district, other than the building in their assigned residential area. Forms must be completed and approved for both Intradistrict open enrollment and Interdistrict open enrollment.
