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, click on the green “Enrolling” tab on the home page, fill out the 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, you must have your enrollment appointment scheduled and completed by Monday, August 14.  Enrollment appointments scheduled after August 14 will mean a school start date of two business days following the completion of your enrollment.  (For example, an enrollment date of Tuesday, August 15, means your child’s first day of school will take place on Friday, August 18.  Wednesday appointments will start your student on Monday, August 21.)
