The Logan Elm Local School District is located about 30 miles south of Columbus, in parts of Pickaway and Hocking Counties, covering 198 square miles. The district formed in the late 1950's, with the consolidation of schools in Washington, Pickaway and Salt Creek Township in Pickaway County. In the early 1970's, the village of Laurelville along with Perry, Laurel and Salt Creek townships in Hocking County joined the district.
