Open Enrollment at Cloverleaf


The Cloverleaf Board of Education believes students should, under certain prescribed circumstances, benefit from an interdistrict open enrollment policy. Guidelines for the transfer of students, based upon criteria established by the school's administration and in conjunction with recommendations from officials of the Ohio Department of Education are listed below. These guidelines are intended to be consistent with Section 3319.98 of the Ohio Revised Code.
 
Public Information 
 
Annually, the district will inform residents about open enrollment options, including deadlines, available to pupils. Information about the district's educational programs and application procedures will be available upon request. Each adjacent superintendent and board of education will be informed of the application procedures and available programs for students. 
 
Application Procedures
 
Notification of open enrollment option to district parents. Interested parents may request information/application materials from the superintendent's office. Student(s) MUST be registered in his/her district of residence before making application for Open Enrollment. 
 
Deadlines
 
July 1
Open enrollment applications are due in the superintendent's office. 
 
July 15
Parents/guardians are informed of acceptance or rejection; acceptance is limited to one school year. Home district is notified of the grade level and number of students accepted. 
 
July 31

Parents must provide adequate supervision of students at bus stops that may very well be miles from the student's home.
