The Madison Local Board of Education permits students from any public school district in Ohio to enroll in the schools of this district without the payment of tuition through its interdistrict open enrollment program.
Through intradistrict open enrollment, the Board of Education also permits students to attend the school of their choice within the district.
Applications will be approved subject to grade- and building-level limitations. Transportation will be provided to and from school, but only from a designated bus stop within the assigned school's attendance area under the same distance and other limitations which apply to native students.
All open enrollment is subject to the terms established by law and the application rules, regulations, procedures and policy of the Board. [See link]
Although the basic purpose of public school facilities is to provide the youth of the community a sound education program, the complete function of education is not achieved until the school facilities are made to serve the total community.
To accomplish this objective, the community is encouraged to use the facilities under the acceptable terms and conditions of Board policy 7510, Community Use of School Facilities and regulations 7510.
School facilities are not available for the financial profit of individuals, corporations or companies.
