Welcome to the Milford Exempted Village School District. We are pleased to assist you in becoming a part of our excellent district. We hope that the following information will be helpful to you.
Central Registration is located at the Board of Education Office, 777 Garfield Ave, Milford, Ohio 45150. Central Registration allows you to enroll all of your students, at one location, for any building in our district except preschool. You can make an appointment by calling 513-576-4178. Registration is by appointment only.
Here are some important details that may help you with the enrollment process:
- You can pick up an enrollment packet at any of our buildings or you can print one at www.milfordschools.org under the forms link.
- There are two registration packets. One is for kindergarten and the other is for grades 1 through 12.
- There is a checklist of items that you will need for registration. Please review this list and bring the items to your appointment. The registration process could be delayed if you do not have all of the required items.
- It is important that parents have the registration packets completed before their appointment
Parents should call Jay Batterson at 513-576-4178 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to make an appointment.
It is important for students who are in grades 7 to 12 to bring an unofficial copy of their transcripts. You will need to have an appointment with a guidance counselor to schedule courses. The guidance counselor will need to see a transcript in order to assign a student to appropriate classes. The lack of a transcript could delay this process.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I do not have an original copy of my student’s birth certificate?
School districts are required to see an original birth certificate upon enrollment. Your student can still be enrolled, but federal law requires that we report a student as a possible missing child if an original birth certificate is not presented within 10 days of enrollment in our school district.
What can I use as my proof of residency?
We will accept only the following items as proof of residency:
- A water or electric bill
- A lease or deed for a home
- A contract on a house that will be completed within the next 60 days
- A residency affidavit (this will require a form completed and signed before a notary along with the homeowner’s photo ID and one of the proofs of residency listed above)
You cannot use other mailings such as a phone or cable bill.
Do I need proof that I have custody of my student?
You will need to show a court document proving that you have custody of a child if you have been divorced or if you have been given guardianship of a child.
Do I need to bring a record of my student’s classes?
It is important that we see a list of classes from the previous school if your student is enrolled in grades 7 through 12. The guidance counselor needs to know what classes your student has already taken in order to create a new class schedule and ensure that your child is placed in the appropriate course level. This does not have to be an official transcript as long as it has a list of all the classes in which your student has previously been placed. The guidance counselor will have to contact the previous school if you do not bring a copy of the transcripts. This could delay enrollment. A school district cannot deny you access to your child’s records.
How can I find out which building my child will attend?
You may call the Transportation Department at (513)575-1563 or Jay Batterson at Central Registration at (513)576-4178.
I am enrolling my kindergartner for the coming school year. Do I need to have the physical examination form and the oral assessment form completed before my registration appointment?
You do not need to have these forms completed in order to enroll your student for the coming school year. You will, however, need to have them completed and turned in before the school year begins.
Will my child be in a.m. or p.m. kindergarten?
Our Transportation Department determines morning or afternoon kindergarten by where you are located in our district. You will be notified which schedule your child is assigned to within 24 hours. You will be notified early in August if you are registering your student for the coming school year.
I qualified for the free and reduced lunch program at my previous district. Do I need to apply again?
Yes, you will need to submit a new application to our Nutrition Services. You can get an application online at www.milfordschools.org or you can get one at your registration appointment.
