Annual Re-registration for Returning Students
South Central families can complete annual back-to-school and athletics forms online using FinalForms. This link can also be used for mid-year updates to student information.
Student signatures: Grades 7-12 students may use their district-assigned email address to sign into FinalForms to complete the student signature portion of the forms. Students should use the "Never logged in" or "Forgot password" options to obtain a link to create a new password. A district-assigned password is not set for students.
Missing Parent Email Addresses: A parent within each household should have received a FinalForms invitation. Families who did not receive an invitation may not have an email address on file. If you encounter any problems, please contact the building secretary.
Our South Central Athletics Packet is now incorporated within FinalForms online forms. In addition to being able to submit all of the required OHSAA documents, student health information will carry over onto the printable OHSAA Physical questionnaire packet that families can take to the student's sports physical. In future years, families will need only to update the previous year's content to complete the requirements.
Thank you for your interest in enrolling at South Central Local Schools. We are proud to serve preschool through high school students in Huron and Ashland counties and look forward to getting to know your child and your family.
To begin the enrollment process for either K-12 or preschool, please review the steps below. If you are inquiring about Open Enrollment, please contact the Board of Education office.

3. Complete Registration Online
South Central uses an online registration process to gather the needed information to enroll your child in school. During your appointment with the Registrar, an account will be set up for you in FinalForms. Your student's account will also be created and linked to you. FinalForms will then send you an e-mail with a link you must click on to confirm your account and set up your password. You may then click on the incomplete forms button and complete all of the forms for your student(s).
If you require assistance completing the online registration packet, please contact the appropriate building secretary. Your registration is complete when you have completed your forms and have completed steps 1 and 2.
Procedure for Custody Verification for Students in All Grades

Please Note: Without all necessary residency and custody paperwork on file in school offices, students will not be permitted to start the school year.
