NON-RESIDENT STUDENT ADMISSION

 

The Board of School Trustees recognizes that a child must be a legal resident of the Shenandoah School Corporation in order to attend its schools.  The Board further recognizes that extenuating circumstances often arise and it is for these cases that the following regulations have been adopted.

 

It is the intent of the Board that all applicable policies and laws in regard to student transfers shall be strictly enforced.

 

The Superintendent of Schools shall develop the operational procedures and forms necessary for the implementation of this policy.

 

Requests by parents, guardians, or custodians of Indiana students who do not reside in Shenandoah School Corporation but who wish to enroll their child in the school system will be considered for enrollment if:

  • Non-resident enrollment is for educational reasons;
  • Non-resident student is in good standing in their resident school corporation;
  • Parents, guardians, or custodians agree to provide transportation to and from the school.
  • When applicable, the parents, guardians, or custodians agree to pay the transfer tuition in a timely manner as established by the Shenandoah School Corporation.
  • Applications must be received by August 1 prior to the start of the school year.  Students who are accepted for enrollment in the Shenandoah School Corporation must be enrolled and attending on the first day of the school year.

 

The decision on acceptance of a non-resident student will be based upon:

  • The student's attendance and academic record at the previous school;
  • the student's disciplinary record at the previous school;
  • class size of the grade level in which the student is enrolling at Shenandoah School Corporation; and
  • the transfer shall not place an undue burden on the Shenandoah School Corporation.

 

The building principal and superintendent shall be granted the discretion to grant or deny any and all transfer requests based on the established procedures.
