GUIDELINES FOR ADMISSION
(The following policy is taken from the St. Brigid Education Commission Policy Book)
The opportunity to attend St. Brigid School is to be extended first to Catholic students who are members of a family which is a registered and supporting* member of the parish, and which live within established parish boundaries. When all children meeting the above criteria cannot be accommodated acceptance will be determined by the following guidelines:
- Students in school the previous year will have first priority on admission the following year.
- Selection of new students will occur in the following order:
- Parishioners with children currently in school.
- Parishioners who do not currently have children in school, with priority given to those parishioners with earliest registration in the parish.
- Non-parishioners with children currently in school with priority given to Catholics from neighboring parishes which do not have schools.
- Non-parishioners, not currently in school, may be admitted after June 30th.
- Class size will be limited to a maximum of 30 students. (This number (30) may be exceeded in case of retention).
- Only those students shall be admitted to the school who give promise of being capable of successfully completing the educational program.
All children accepted into the school will be required to have proper immunizations as prescribed by the Greene County Health Department, in accordance with established rules from the State of Ohio.
*Supporting is defined as an active, contributing member of the parish as stated in the “Qualifications of a Parishioner”.
St. Brigid School, through state and federal funding programs, offers programs in the area of Speech/Language Therapy, Psychological testing, Counseling services, Chapter I, and Reading Tutor. Our goal at St. Brigid School is to provide the best Catholic education to all our students. One way in which we do this is to try to meet the individual needs of our students through our programs.
Due to funding limitations, Federal and State regulations, and the number of children who may need special help, it is not always possible for us to meet the needs of all children who may require special educational programs.
If your child has a special need, it is strongly suggested that you make an appointment with the principal prior to enrollment to determine if St. Brigid School can satisfactorily meet your child’s needs.
