child(ren) to a new school district!

  1. Parents/Guardians withdrawingstudents must provide a Photo ID to the Perry Board of Education Office when filing paperwork.
  2. Complete a Withdrawal Form (available at the Perry Board of Education Office) which serves as a notice to the new school district and a release of school records to your child’s new school.
  3. Parents/Guardians have five (5) days to register child(ren) in the new school district.
Change in Residency/Registration Information within the Perry Local School District: 
Perry Local School District is obligated by policy and procedures to enforce the enrollment parameters set forth below.  Upon registration, parents/guardians are required to sign a "Statement of Understanding” acknowledging that their residence is within North Perry Village, Perry Township or Perry Village, the student being enrolled is not expelled from another school district, all court documents pertaining to custody or residency have been provided, and agreeing to inform the district immediately if any custody or residency changes occur.  Children found to be attending school in defiance of the residency conditions are to be removed from the school district rosters and not to be permitted to continue to attend in the district.  The District reserves the right to charge tuition for student attendance in violation of the residency requirement. 

The laws of the State of Ohio (Ohio Revised Code Section 3313.64, 3313.08, 3319.04, 3327.06) provide that a school age child under the age of 18 years can attend school only in the district in which his/her parent(s) or other court appointed guardian have established legal residence.  Therefore, Perry Local Schools is obligated to educate only students whose parents/guardians have established residency within the borders of Perry Local School District.

In the event that a family would have any changes to custody or residency during the year, the following procedure should be followed: 

Change in custody:
Provide officially signed, date and time-stamped Court Documents to the Board of Education Office.

Change in residency within Perry Local School District:
Anyone proving residency must provide a Photo ID to the Perry Board of Education Office when filing paperwork. 

Resident is required to provide two (2) proofs of residency in any combination of the following forms:
- Real estate tax bill, rental/lease agreement, building permit or real estate document demonstrating residence
- Current Gas, Electric, Water or Sewer Bill
- Current Bank Statement
- Current Voter Registration Card

 If the documents requested above are not available, a Residency Affidavit may be accepted.

Thank you for your help in this matter!  If you have any questions regarding residency or registration procedures, please feel free to contact me using the following contact information.
