To serve the residents of our community, Parents may register their children by appointment at the Central Registration office. New families to the Ross Local School District will be able to register their child/children for school at a one-stop location for maximum convenience. The Central Registration Office is located at:

KG Registration Update!!!
Due to the extension of the stay-at-home order issued by Governor DeWine, our kindergarten registration event has been canceled. However, we are still very excited to welcome your child to kindergarten in the Ross Local School District through our new KG enrollment process for incoming kindergarten students ONLY:
To get started, you will need to complete your child’s Final Forms enrollment as soon as possible. You can access the login page by clicking here.
The step-by-step directions for completing Final Forms are linked here.
You will know if your Final Forms are completed when each form’s section on the left hand side is highlighted green.
Once you have completed the enrollment, our district registrar, Tonja Curry, will contact you with the next steps in our virtual registration process.
The Special Transportation Request form must be filled out if your child will be picked up and/or dropped off at an address other than your HOME address. This form MUST be completed by 7/1/20.
A BIG thank you to all who have completed these first 3 steps, already! Mrs. Curry will be in contact soon. In addition, anyone that fully completes their soon-to-be-kindergartner’s Final Forms enrollment by MAY 4, 2020, will receive a free Ross Class of 2033 t-shirt courtesy of the Elda and Morgan Elementary PTO’s! A pick-up date/time will be determined once the stay-at-home order expires. If you have any questions about these new enrollment procedures, please contact Tonja Curry, the District Registrar, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Tracy Wright, the District Instructional Specialist, at email@example.com
