Welcome to Wauseon Schools

*All new student enrollment forms are completed online.  Carefully read the information below before completing the registration.

Please CLICK HERE if you are enrolling a new student for the 2017-18 school year.

This link is for NEW STUDENT enrollment only.  For returning students who attended Wauseon Schools in the 2016-17 school year, the online Returning Student Data Verification form will be available for the upcoming school year through your PowerSchool Parent Portal account starting August 1st.

After you complete the online enrollment form, you are required to bring the following documentation to the building your child will attend (listed below). You may do so beginning August 7, 2017, during the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday.  Please call for an appointment. Your child’s enrollment is not considered complete, and your child will not be assigned to a classroom/schedule or bus transportation, until we receive the following:

Birth Certificate - Birth record or certificate of live birth will NOT be accepted.  

Proof of Residency - We will accept one of the following:  A current utility bill in your name (gas, electric, water, cable TV, propane, trash removal, etc.)


  • Purchase agreement with closing date; or a settlement statement; and a utility bill in your name within 30 days


  • Lease/rental agreement in your name; and a utility bill in your name within 30 days


Custody Paperwork

  • If the child’s parents are divorced, you must provide a copy of the complete court document (divorce/dissolution decree, shared parenting agreement, or other court determination of custody) including the cover page with filed/date stamp, page stating legal custodial/residential parent, and judge’s signature page (RC 3313.672 (B)(1)).


  • If legal custody is being established or changed, the petitioner has sixty (60) days from the date of enrollment to produce a signed Journal Entry of Judgment establishing a change in custody.  In order for your child to be enrolled in Wauseon Schools during this waiting period, you must provide a copy of the filed/date stamped motion petitioning the court for a change in custody, and sign an affidavit stating that a custody change is in progress.

  • If someone other than the parent has been given legal guardianship or custody of the child, you must provide a copy of the court order transferring custody.


◆ Current Immunization Records

School Records - A copy of most recent transcript / grade card with address of previous school so we can officially request your child’s records. Also, if your child is on a special education plan (IEP, 504, etc.), please bring a copy of those documents with you.

After you complete the online enrollment form, you are required to bring the documentation listed above to the building your child will attend. Please call for an appointment.
