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.
