Policy JBCB – Nonresident Students (Amended November 2015)
Non-resident students who are permitted to attend the District must satisfy the following criteria:
A. The student (or parent/guardian) must submit a District transfer request form using the on-line enrollment program, including reasons for the transfer request, to the Superintendent before the student’s first attendance year in the District. Thereafter, a District transfer request form must be submitted for each succeeding year of desired attendance. The Building Principal will consider the request and will inform the student (or parent/guardian) by written notification of approval or denial.
B. Admittance will not be made if facilities or classes are deemed to be overcrowded.
C. The student must be in good standing in the previous District. If the student is presently under suspension or expulsion, we cannot accept them as a student.
D. Out of District transportation will not be provided nor will mileage be paid for private transportation. If adequate seating is available, students may be transported if they meet the bus at the nearest in-District bus stop. Out of district students who use district transportation will need to pay the transportation fee.
E. No tuition will be assessed non-resident students who are allowed to enroll in USD 348 if they attend school in the District by September 20 (official enrollment date) of each school year.
F. Those students accepted will be subject to a building-level review every semester to determine acceptance for the following semester. Whenever (at any time during the school year) a student falls out of good standing, his/her non-resident transfer approval may be revoked.
G. In the semester review, the following items will be considered to determine continued enrollment:
b. Grades/Scholastic achievement
c. Disciplinary record
e. Academic progress toward graduation
H. Students will attend the elementary attendance center assigned by the District.
I. Any attempt by the student, parents or guardians to falsify any information to bypass the approval process will mean an automatic disqualification of enrollment. Remember to be considered an in-district student the student must be residing with a parent or guardian (sleeping and living) at a residence within the district boundaries.
