STUDENT ADMISSION POLICY TERMS
1. RESIDENT STUDENTS:
A student is a "resident" student if he or she meets at least one of the following criteria:
- The student physically resides and is domiciled in the district. The domicile of a minor child shall be the domicile of a parent, military guardian pursuant to a military-issued guardianship or court-appointed legal guardian. A “power of attorney” document alone, with the exception of a special power of attorney document relevant to the guardianship of a child in the household of an active duty member of the military, is insufficient to satisfy the “court-appointed legal guardian” requirement.
- The student physically resides in the district for reasons other than obtaining access to the district's schools, regardless of with whom the student is living, and has a waiver of proof of residency on file.
2. WAIVER OF PROOF OF RESIDENCY:
In cases where a student living in the district wishes to enroll, but the student does not live with a parent, military guardian or court-appointed guardian in the district and is not otherwise allowed by law or contractual relationship with another district to attend, the student, parent, military guardian, legal guardian or person acting as a parent must request a waiver of proof of residency. Waiver of proof of residency will only be granted on the basis of hardship or good cause. Good cause shall include situations where the student is living in the district for reasons other than attending school in the district. Under no circumstances shall athletic ability be a valid basis of hardship or good cause for the issuance of a waiver.
Once a waiver of proof of residency has been requested and the superintendent or designee has determined that attendance is in the best interest of the student, the student may be permitted to enroll and attend school until such time as the Board decides to grant or deny the waiver request. If the Board grants the waiver request, the student will be allowed to continue attending school in the district. If the Board denies the waiver request, the student shall not be allowed to continue attending school in the district. All waivers of proof of residency must be approved on an annual basis.
