Kindergarten Screening will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd at Cory-Rawson Elementary School.

The following items will be required that day for registration purposes:
  1. Child's Birth Certificate. This must be the certificate issued by the County Health Department. Hospital Record of Birth is not an acceptable document.
  2. Social Security Card

  5. If this is an Open Enrollment registration, the additional Open Enrollment paperwork must also be completed and returned to the Superintendent's office. This registration, along with the Kindergarten Screening, does not guarantee Open Enrollment acceptance.
On Kindergarten registration and screening day, parents will have a short informational meeting and opportunity to complete Kindergarten signup through FinalForms (Chromebooks Provided) while students are screened by CRES staff.  To register and schedule your screening, please complete this form.

Preschool Registration Information for 2023-24

Peer model students in the Cory-Rawson Preschool unit serve as role models for the children in our program who have special needs in the area of communication, hearing, vision, social- emotional skills, cognitive skills, motor skills and adaptive behavior skills. If you have any developmental concerns regarding your child please contact the Preschool Supervisor, Donna Losiewicz, at the Hancock Educational Service Center at 419-422-7525 ext. 208.

Children who are at least 3 or 4 years of age by August 1 of the 2023-2024  school year will be screened to determine age appropriate levels of social, physical, and language development prior to enrollment. 

Preschool registration for the screening is during the month of February. Parents who are interested in registering their child for preschool will need to come to the elementary office and fill out a registration form, or complete the registration form on the Cory-Rawson webpage. Parents should not call the school office to register.

The preschool screening will be held on March 24  at Cory-Rawson. The preschool teacher, Marianne Brinkman, will call each person on the list to make an appointment for the screening. 

Enrollment in the preschool classroom is limited to 7 peer model students per class. In the event more students apply then slots available, the peer models will be selected based on age of students (students who will attend kindergarten the following year will be considered first), screening observation, and the use of random selection (lottery style). 

There are 2 sessions for CR  preschool. Classes meet Monday through Thursday. The morning class is in session from 7:50 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. The afternoon class is in session from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.. Parents may select a class preference, but there is not a guarantee that parents will be provided their first choice. 

The HCESC will be operating a preschool class at the Blanchard Valley Center (Sandusky Street in Findlay) next school year. Children will attend preschool 2 full days (either Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday).  Each county school will be assigned specific days. The approximate preschool hours will be from 7:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  The preschool tuition will be the same as the other ESC preschool programs.

When filling out the registration form, please check if you are interested in CR preschool or Blanchard Valley preschool. 

 If you have any questions feel free to contact Mrs. Brinkman (preschool teacher) at or 419-963-7017 ext. 3011. 

CRHS Boy Scout Seeking Your Support!


Greetings to all Cory-Rawson community members. My name is Carson Skulina and I am a junior in the class of 2023 at Cory-Rawson High School. I am also a Boy Scout of Arlington troop 318 and am seeking funding for my Eagle Scout project for Cory-Rawson Local Schools. I have received approval to construct a Gaga Ball Pit to be used by Cory-Rawson students. The structure will replace the balance beam on the west side of the fenced playground.

The structure will include 6 walls each 30 inches in height, a gate and cutout entry point for easy entry and safety. An easy-to-follow rules sign and silicon covers for the top of the boards will also be included. For the bracket set and raw materials it will cost just over $1,400 to construct a quality pit that will last for many years to come.

To accomplish this goal I am seeking the support of the community. Eagle Scout projects are funded by community support and I am asking you to help me reach my goal and get this project started.

Donations can be turned in to the elementary office or Dr. Hilty. Checks should be in an envelope made out to Cory-Rawson Local schools marked “Eagle Scout Donation” on the front.

All donations given to the project will be collected by Cory Rawson Local Schools and then given to the Scout to manage the project. Any excess proceeds will be maintained by Cory- Rawson Local Schools
