Enrolling in School
A child must be five years of age on or before August 1 in order to enroll in Kindergarten. Special tests for early entrance may enable a child who will be 5 between August 2 and October 31 to enroll in Kindergarten. For more information on the early entrance program, please call the Office of Pupil Personnel Services at 330-821-2105. Students are expected to enroll in the attendance district in which they live.
If open enrollment is an option or other arrangements need to be made to attend a school outside of the student’s home district, it should be done through the home school.
Students who are new to Alliance City Schools are required to enroll with their parents or legal guardian at their designated school of attendance. When enrolling, the parents will need to bring:
• a legal birth certificate (not the hospital certificate)
• custody or court papers allocating parental rights and responsibilities (if appropriate)
• social security number
• proof of residency
• proof of immunizations
• most current report card or transcript from previous school (if applicable) - Students enrolling from another accredited school must have an official transcript from the sending school in order to receive credit from that school. The school secretary will assist in obtaining the transcript if not presented at the time of enrollment.
In some cases, a temporary enrollment may be permitted. If that is done, the parents will be told what records are needed to make the enrollment complete.
