Non-resident students are those who do not meet the definition of a resident student. Only nonresident students who are children of district employees, those who are in the process of moving into the district, and those who have completed their junior year as a district resident may be admitted to the extent that staff, facilities, equipment and supplies are available. (Criteria for admission: academic standing, attendance, and disciplinary record). Applications for nonresident student enrollment must be submitted annually. A non-resident student who has been suspended or expelled from another district will not be admitted to the district unless approved by the board. Students whose parents are in the process of moving into or out of the district may enroll temporarily as non-residents by completing the required form and submitting appropriate documentation. This is done to help students avoid having to change schools in the middle of a semester. Information about residency requirements may be obtained from the school.
