Open enrollment window opens May 1
Marion City Schools will accept applications for 2019-2020 open enrollment May 1-June 27.
While the district typically starts accepting applications on April 1, the process was delayed for the 2019-2020 school year so that the district could review its guidelines. We urge parents/guardians to continue reading to learn about changes including where to submit applications.
A student’s address generally determines what school building and/or school district that the student attends. Marion City School District assigns students who live within the district to what building serves their attendance area and, in the need of special education, their specific needs.
Students who want to change schools or school districts must apply for open enrollment.
Marion City Schools offers two types of open enrollment:
- From one school building to another, called intra-district open enrollment.
- From another school district into Marion City School District, called inter-district open enrollment.
Families may submit open enrollment applications to the MCS Student Welcome Center at 910 E. Church St. starting on May 1.
A student accepted for a given school year will not be displaced. However, parents/guardians MUST RE-APPLY EACH SCHOOL YEAR. Marion City Schools DOES NOT GUARANTEE ENROLLMENT from one school year to the next.
Marion City Schools will consider applicants on a first-come, first-serve basis. Possible reasons for rejection of an application include if enrollment in a grade level or course reaches the appropriate level.
Applications must be submitted to the Marion City Schools Welcome Center at 910 E. Church St.
We encourage you to call 740-223-3882 or 740-223-4422 or visit the Welcome Center if you have any questions regarding enrollment at Marion City Schools.
