The program is coordinated through the Deputy Superintendent’s Office for families who are enrolled full-time in the Westerville City School District. Parents or guardians wishing to apply to have their children attend a school different from their school of attendance must complete and submit an Intra-district Open Enrollment Application. Application forms are available at each school building; at the Early Learning Center (936 Eastwind Drive); or at www.wcsoh.org, where general guidelines can also be found.
Application forms must be completed by parents or guardians and submitted for middle and high school students on or before March 15. For high school students, priority will be given if an older sibling is currently enrolled in the high school to which the student is applying. A lottery will be held for all remaining high school openings. Applications for middle and high school students received after the deadline of March 15, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Application forms for elementary school students must be completed by parents or guardians and submitted on or before May 1. Applications for elementary school students received after the deadline of May 1, will be considered on a case-by-case basis. For students who have applied to attend an elementary or middle school outside their assigned attendance area, applications will not be considered if:
Enrollment would not allow students who live in the school building attendance area to attend;
Appropriate teacher/student ratio is not maintained;
Racial balance among schools within the district is not maintained;
Transportation is the responsibility of the parents/guardians who are requesting a transfer outside of their home school of attendance.
