Kettering city school guidance counselors aim at helping children realize their full potential and thrive in the 21st century.

To qualify for home instruction, a student must have a statement from his/her physician. To arrange for home instruction, contact the building principal.<br /> <br /> <a name="Schooling" ></a ><strong ><u >Home Schooling Information</u ></strong ><br /> <br /> State Law in Ohio permits families to educate their children at home using curriculum and methodologies of their choosing. Certain core subject areas must be taught, and a minimum of 900 hours of instruction must be completed. A notification process that includes the completion of a Home Education Notification Form must be followed and this form must be renewed each year. In addition, a Home Education Academic Assessment Report must accompany the completed Notification Form each year when it is submitted to the school district. Questions regarding Home Schooling should be directed to the Student Services Department at (937) 499-1433.<br /> <br /> <a name="Enrollment" ></a ><strong ><u >Intra- District Open-Enrollment Information</u ></strong ><br /> <br /> The Kettering Board of Education believes that students should be permitted to attend a school of their choice within the district. As such, families can apply for attendance at the school of choice based upon Established Criteria. When requesting an open enrollment transfer, the parent or guardian needs to complete an Intradistrict Enrollment Application Form. Questions regarding open enrollment should be directed to the Student Services Department at (937) 499-1433.<br /> <br />  </div > <p > </p > <p > </p > <p > </p >
