Parents who have had their kids in a local public school district are being told they cant come back.

West Geauga Schools have allowed open enrollment since 2007, meaning that out-of-district students are accepted tuition-free. It was an effort to stop declining enrollment and boost funding.

Now the board of education has cut the number of open enrollment students for next year, after opposition in the community.

The district received 376 applications and accepted half of those, with 35 previous students being rejected.

Open enrollment parents say this is unfair and they hope to change the board's mind.
