Enrollment Procedures


CLICK HERE  to enroll a new student for the CURRENT 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR.

To enroll a new student for the current 2020-21 school year, complete and submit the online enrollment form. After you complete and submit the enrollment form, call 419-877-5377 to schedule a time to bring the required documents to our Central Administrative Office at 9565 Bucher Rd. in Whitehouse. Our office is currently closed to visitors, but we are offering a "no contact" way for you to provide the required documents for your child's enrollment. Inside the main entrance doors is a box. Place the documents in the box, then step outside or return to your car. We will come get the documents, make the necessary copies, and bring them back to the box along with some important school information. Then you can retrieve your documents. This will just take a few minutes. Only one appointment is needed per family, even if you are enrolling more than one child.

After you complete the online enrollment form, you are required to bring the following documentation to our Central Administrative Office at 9565 Bucher Road, Whitehouse, Ohio.  Your child’s enrollment is not considered complete, and your child will not be assigned to a class or bus transportation, until we receive the following:

  Proof of the child’s age  (birth certificate, passport, attested transcript of a hospital record)

  Proof of Residency   We will accept the following:

  • Two current utility bills in the parent’s name; or

  •  A current mortgage statement + current utility bill in the parent’s’ name; or

  • A Lease/rental agreement + current utility bill  (parent’s name and landlord’s contact information must appear on the lease); or

  • Purchase Agreement - If you are purchasing a house, we will accept a copy of your signed purchase agreement, followed by 2 utility bills in your name after you move into the house. 

  • If you are building a house in the district, the building contract, and written statement from the builder that occupancy will occur within 90 days of the first day of school in August; or

  • If your permanent residence is with another family in the district, a Notarized residency affidavit + 2 current utility bills in homeowner’s name. This affidavit is available under District Forms on our website.

  Proof of Custody 

  • If the child’s parents are divorced, provide a copy of the complete court document (divorce/dissolutionment decree, shared parenting agreement, or other court determination of custody) including the cover page with filed/date stamp, page stating legal custodial/residential parent, and judge’s signature page (RC 3313.672 (B)(1)).

  • If legal custody is being established or changed, the petitioner has sixty (60) days from the date of enrollment to produce a signed Journal Entry of Judgment establishing a change in custody.  In order for your child to be enrolled in Anthony Wayne Schools during this waiting period, you must provide a copy of the filed/date stamped motion petitioning the court for a change in custody, and sign an affidavit stating that a custody change is in progress. The Seeking Custody Affidavit is available under District Forms on our website.

  • If someone other than the parent has been given legal guardianship or custody of the child, you must provide a copy of the court order transferring custody.

  • The general rule in Ohio is that an unmarried female who gives birth to a child is the sole residential parent and legal custodian of the child until a court issues an order designating another person as the residential parent and legal custodian (RC 3109.042).  In such cases, the mother will be asked to sign an Unmarried Parent Affidavit stating that she was not married to the father, and that legal custody of the child has not been assigned to either parent by the court. This affidavit is available under District Forms on our website.

  Current Immunization Records

  • (For 2020 Kindergarten students) Immunization record, 5-year Physical form and Dental form – must be received in the school office by September 9, 2020. Kindergarten Health Forms are available to download from the district website.

  • (For students in grades 1-12) provide current immunization records

  School Records   We will request your child’s official records from their previous school; however, it is helpful if you provide
 an unofficial transcript or the child’s most recent report card, and Special Education records (IEP, ETR, 504 Plan) if applicable.

Parent’s Photo Identification (driver’s license/military ID/state ID)
