Vision: The Swanton Local School District is THE district of choice with an academic environment where student achievement is top priority, community involvement is vital, all individuals are valued, and the school is a point of pride.

Mission: To provide a superior educational experience by working together with students, families and community.


Kindergarten Registration 2015-16 Requirements/Assessment

Swanton Local Schools will have Kindergarten Registration and Screening on March 26th  and 27th  for the 2015-16 school year.  Kindergarten students must be five years old before August 1, to qualify for entrance to Kindergarten.  Parents need to call Crestwood Elementary from 9:00-2:30 at 419/826-8991 to schedule an appointment.  Custodial parent or guardian MUST register the potential Kindergarten student.

The following documents for the student are required at the time of registration:

Birth certificate or passport - no other documents will be accepted.

If you do not have an original birth certificate, contact the Bureau of Vital Statistics in the state where your child was born to obtain one. Hospital Record with footprints is not acceptable.                     

            Immunization Records must be submitted at the time of enrollment.

Custody Papers or Foster Placement Agreement – The parent/legal guardian/foster parent will have to furnish custody papers, divorce decrees or foster placement agreements (entire documents), if necessary.  If custody papers are required and not presented, the child cannot be admitted.  If a custody change is in progress, a notarized affidavit listing the court file number of the custody petition may be substituted, but for no longer than sixty (60) days.

Proof of Residency The parent/legal guardian will have to furnish proof of residency in the Swanton School District in an approved domicile.  This may be shown through a sales agreement for a house, a lease or rental contract, or a current utility bill listing the name and address.   Letters from rental managers may be requested.  All must be dated within the last thirty (30) days.  If this is not available and the parent/guardian lives with someone, a Residency Affidavit Form will be required and needs to be filled out by the home owner and parent.  This form must be notarized and proof of residency must be furnished by the owner of the residence.



The formation of the Swanton Local School District Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame will serve to recognize and honor graduates and alumni, and at the same time show current students what can be accomplished following their time at Swanton High School.

Each year, the Hall of Fame committee will collect nominations and select up to three individuals for induction into the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. Nominations for the first Hall of Fame class are being accepted now.

Swanton Superintendent Jeff Schlade said that the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame is long overdue.

“There are so many past students of this great district who have gone on to accomplish tremendous success in their chosen career fields and who have demonstrated great citizenship and meritorious service throughout their lives,” he said. “What better role models could we put before our students in an assembly type fashion?”

Preliminary plans for the autumn induction include a luncheon, followed by an assembly at the high school. Recognition at halftime of a varsity football game is also planned.

“We are all so excited to see how the selection of the first class of inductees, the ceremony, and the assembly and recognition of their accomplishments unfolds over the next several months," said Schlade.”

Since the inaugural induction cannot take place without nominations, organizers are relying on Swanton alumni and community members for nominations to see this new tradition through. 

Public Library, as well as the Swanton Local School District Board of Education office. There is also a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/swantonalumnihalloffame) where more information will be available in the coming weeks.

The deadline for nominations is April 30.
