Code No. 501.6 Student Transfers Into the District

Students who transfer into the school district must meet the immunization and age requirements set out for students who initially enroll in the school district.

The school district shall request the student’s cumulative records from the previous school district.  If the student cannot offer proof of grade level, the superintendent will make the grade level determination.  The superintendent may require testing or other information to determine the grade level.  Students expelled or suspended from their previous school district will only be enrolled after approval of the board.

The superintendent shall determine the amount of credits to be transferred.  If the student has not previously attended an accredited school, it is within the superintendent’s discretion to accept or reject credits or grades.  A student not attending grades nine through eleven at an accredited school shall be unranked for class ranking purposes.

The board may deny admission if the student is not willing to provide the board with the necessary information.

Any student declared ineligible under the prior school district’s good conduct code, and then without having the full period of ineligibility at that school transfers to the school district, will not be eligible for interscholastic competition until the full period of ineligibility has been completed.  Once that time period of ineligibility has been completed, the student then is immediately eligible for interscholastic competition in the school district.
