Are you new to the Westerville City School District?  Have you moved back recently?  Those who have not yet registered should visit the district’s website at www.wcsoh.org, click on the green “Enrolling” box on the home page, fill out the 2018-19 Enrollment online application for registration and schedule an appointment to complete their enrollment.  Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to finalize this process as soon as possible to ensure placement in their child’s assigned school.

To ensure your child will be able to attend the first day of school (Thursday, August 16), you must have your enrollment appointment scheduled and completed by Monday, August 13.  Enrollment appointments scheduled after August 13 will mean a school start date of two business days following the completion of your enrollment.  (For example, an enrollment date of Tuesday, August 14, means your child’s first day of school will take place on Friday, August 17.  Wednesday appointments will start your student on Monday, August 20.)
