About this data: Learn More »

  • Ohio's open enrollment policy allows students to attend public schools outside their designated districts tuition free. Application practices differ by district. Parents are responsible for transportation. The open enrollment application periods generally begin each spring when school districts select one of three options: no open enrollment; enrollment from students residing in adjacent school districts; or open enrollment from students residing in any Ohio school district.
