Welcome to Olmsted Falls School District
NEW STUDENTS (GRADES 1 TO 12) REGISTERING FOR UPCOMING 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR
The information and link on this page (below) is exclusively for the registration of BRAND NEW students to Olmsted Falls Schools entering into grades 1 to 12. If you are a parent of a returning student, please do NOT use the link below for updating student information for the 2020-2021 school year. All parents of returning students will be directed to access the "Returning Student Registration 2020-2021" portal through your existing PowerSchool Parent Account to update your student information this summer.
New Student Registration for the 2020 – 2021 school year is NOW OPEN for all grade levels. We look forward to welcoming your student(s) to Olmsted Falls City Schools!
PLEASE NOTE: With the unprecedented ongoing closure of our school buildings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Olmsted Falls City Schools will be attempting to complete the new student registration process with minimal-face-to-face contact. This includes collecting required documents such as parent identification, proof of residency, student records, etc.) electronically. Support and guidance will be provided by phone to walk you through that process.
The FIRST STEP is for you to complete the initial online registration for your student(s). You can get started by clicking the link highlighted in yellow below.
At the end of the online registration process for each student, you will be asked to select an appointment for the building the student will be attending. Please select one of the available times to initiate the process of our building reaching out to you to complete the SECOND STEP of collecting required supporting documents.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the current school closures, the appointment time you select time you select will not translate into an actual in-person appointment time, but rather will alert our buildings to initiate the reaching out to you to attempt to complete the process of collecting supporting documents electronically if possible.
If this is not possible to submit required documents electronically, then you may then arrange a date and time to come in to complete registration at the building. If you have students in multiple buildings and need to come in to complete the registration process, we will make all attempts to complete registrations for all of your students through the building that your oldest student will attend.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SPOKEN TO SOMEONE BEFORE GOING TO A BUILDING. Again, the appointment time you select does not automatically translate into a face-to-face appointment at this time due to school closures. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to welcoming you and your students to Olmsted Falls City Schools.

Proof of Residency: Parents/guardians must submit documents proving residency. For the protection of all residents, it is the obligation of parents/guardians seeking to enroll a student to prove they legally reside in the Olmsted Falls City School District. The district will NOT enroll without proof of residence. The only documents accepted for proof of residency are:

Purchase agreement signed by all concerned parties

Property tax bill
Electric, Gas, and/or Sewer/Water bill
Guardianship/Custody Documents (if applicable): A certified copy of any Court Order establishing Custody or Guardianship from Domestic Relations Court, Probate Court, Juvenile Court, or any other Court of competent jurisdiction which has issued an order regarding the custody of the student being registered. To verify guardianship or custody, the following are the only acceptable proofs:
A certified, time-stamped court order indicating custody together with any modification (3313.672 ORC) attached to the Custody Form.
A time-stamped notice of the application for appointment of guardian from probate court (valid for 60 days)
A certified copy of court placement orders for foster children attached to the Foster Children Form (form to be completed at time of registration).
These are the only acceptable custody or guardian papers. A letter from the current guardian giving temporary custody is NOT acceptable. Any changes or modifications in the custody orders must also be submitted.
Student's Birth Certificate: The parent/guardian must present an original or certified copy. In lieu of a birth certificate, a birth affidavit, a passport or an attested transcript of a passport filed with a registrar of passports at a point of entry of the United States showing the date and place of birth of the student may be accepted.

STUDENTS WITHOUT REPORT CARD AND/OR HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT WILL NOT BE ENROLLED. WE WILL ACCEPT AN UNOFFICIAL COPY.
