Parents from any school district in Ohio are welcome to apply, but space is limited and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Enrollment is tuition free, but parents must pay for all school fees.

If a grade level closes, we will still encourage parents to complete the open enrollment application and we will maintain waiting lists until July 1st. On July 1st, open enrollment will end for the 2020-2021 school year.

This year we are using an online application, application opens on February 3rd at 7:30 am,  that is easily accessible and will allow you fill it out and submit it without having to come in person. All forms are submitted electronically and time-stamped. This online application does provide space for you to upload documents in PDF format, such as IEP, WEP or 504 plans. Parents of high school students also need to submit their last report card. The application will be posted at http://www.firelandsschools.org under the “student registration” section. There will be a news article on the front page of the website as well, linking you to the application location.

Official notification of your status will come from the Superintendent’s Office by email throughout the process. Please contact Sue Schaefer in the Superintendent’s Office at 440-965-5821 if you have questions or are having any problems with the electronic form.
