The Milford Board of Education passed an Interdistrict Open Enrollment Policy at its July 15 meeting, which allows students from adjoining districts to enroll in Milford. The Board approved this policy due to the additional revenue open enrollment students generate for the district. The State of Ohio will reimburse the district approximately $6,000 for each student from outside of the school district who enrolls in Milford. More than 77% of school districts in Ohio have this policy because of this additional revenue.
Milford will not increase the amount of teachers nor will we add or expand any special programs for open enrollment students. Currently, we have limited openings in each grade level at our elementary schools. Due to the variation in scheduling in grades 7-12, we will work with the building administrators to determine where there are openings. Enrollment in a particular class by an interdistrict student cannot cause that option to be closed to residents of the Milford School District.
Applications for enrollment will be accepted beginning July 19, 2010, from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m., at our Board Office. The final cut off for applications is August 16, by 4 p.m. Outside the district applications shall be on a first come, first serve basis (date/time of receipt) with an assurance that the following order for placement will be followed:
- Milford Exempted Village School District resident students will not be displaced
- Children of employees
- Students who are members of the same family unit pursuant to Interdistrict Open Enrollment Policy
