Pettisville Local Schools is committed to provide each student a distinctively superior education that enriches both student and community.

If you are considering Pettisville Schools for your child or family, either through open enrollment or moving to the community, we encourage you to do the following:

  1. Visit the school. Please feel free to call the principal of the school(s) involved for a tour. We can arrange a time when other students and faculty are present or a quiet time when few will be around. Mr. Jason Waldvogel is the elementary school (PK-6) principal (jwaldvogel@pettisvilleschools.org) phone 419-446-2705 extension 1132 or Mr. Michael Lane is the high school (7-12) principal (mlane@pettisvilleschools.org) same number extension 1124. A toll-free number is also available at 888-446-2705 if you are calling long distance.
  2. Speak to other Open Enrollment Parents. We can provide names of parents of students who will be in your child(ren)’s activities or grades to compare notes.
  3. Apply Early. There is no obligation to accept enrollment if offered. Students can return to their home school at any time should they choose. By applying early, you will have a better chance of being accepted and not being closed out of the grade you need.

There are several family-friendly policies in place to help avoid potential problems later.

  1. If older siblings are enrolled in Pettisville, when the younger children come of school age, they are guaranteed not to be denied entrance due to class size. If we accept your older children, we will not deny younger children because of class size.
  2. Once we accept a child, we will not later deny renewal because of class size.
