The District provides student transportation for elementary, middle and high school students in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code.  At the time of enrollment, the Registrar will determine if the student is eligible for school transportation and provide the bus stop information detailing pick up and drop off location and time for each enrolled student. Summer registrants may have the information mailed directly to the new student’s Strongsville home address.


Class Scheduling:

Upon successful enrollment, class schedules can be developed for middle and high school students.. Middle school students will select electives at the time of registration, but middle school counselors will determine their class schedule.  Upon successful enrollment, high school students must make an appointment with the high school guidance department to set their class schedule.  The phone number of the high school Guidance Office will be provided to parents by the Registrar upon completion of enrollment.
