Elementary Attendance Boundaries

West Clermont continues to be a district of choice! Our district enrollment has increased recently and is projected to do so in the future. Moderate enrollment projections show that the district will increase by 1,800 new students over the next 10 years. Our elementary buildings are currently unbalanced. Moving the attendance boundaries will allow us to accommodate our current enrollment as well our projected future growth.


As this process unfolds we want to be as transparent as possible with all of the information that you need. Please visit http://www.westcler.k12.oh.us/Content/facilities for all of the latest information. Links on the page includes:


  • Current District Master Facilities Plan

If you have any questions about the process being used to move our elementary attendance boundaries, or if you would like to offer your feedback, please email us at info@westcler.org.

West Clermont High School Project Teach

13 students from West Clermont High School are participating in a program called "Project Teach". These students have expressed an interest in being a teacher after high school and are getting real world field experience in teaching. The students have put together a video on the characteristics they want to see out of their teachers. Thank you to Megan Davidson for organizing this amazing opportunity for our students!
