Groveport Madison Schools re-opening update

A message from Groveport Madison Schools:

We want to make you aware that we received new guidance from Franklin County Public Health, indicating that central Ohio’s current COVID-19 conditions, as they are, will not permit us (or other area school districts) to open in an in-person setting to start the new school year.

With this new guidance, at tomorrow night’s Board of Education meeting, we will be recommending to the Board that all Groveport Madison students begin the year in the 100% Remote Online Learning Model. Online-only instruction will be in place until guidance comes from Franklin County Public Health that indicates students can come to school in an in-person Blended Learning Model – when COVID-19 cases decrease and remain low.

Given that in-person classes may resume at some point this year, it is still vital that we identify those families who prefer for their child to take classes through Cruiser Digital Academy for the entire school year to begin staffing the program.

We have extended our response deadline for parents and guardians to select the child’s preferred learning model for the upcoming school year to midnight, Sunday, August 2. The options will remain the same as before (resume in-person classes when permitted to do so or take classes through Cruiser Digital Academy for the entire school year).

With this additional time to make your selection, you’re welcome to sign back into your FinalForms account and revise your initial choice, if you prefer to do so. If you are comfortable with your choice, there’s no need to revisit the form. We will close down the selection page at midnight on Sunday, August 2.

Thank you for your understanding. We recognize the anxiety and frustration this situation is causing. It’s frustrating for us as well. However, despite any other changes, our goal remains the same – to provide the best possible education to your child without compromising health and safety for all involved.

Please know we will update you with any additional news as soon as it becomes available, following Wednesday night’s Board meeting.

Should you have questions about accessing your FinalForms account, go to, or call our Enrollment Office, at 614-491-8288. General questions also can be emailed to
