FDA(LOCAL) - ADMISSIONS: INTERDISTRICT TRANSFERS

Authority

The Superintendent is authorized to accept or reject any transfer requests, provided that such action is without regard to race, religion, color, sex, disability, national origin, or ancestral language.

When any administrator becomes aware that a resident student has moved out of the District during the course of a school year, the District shall initiate withdrawal and notify the district in which the student resides; however, the student shall be permitted to apply for a transfer to continue enrollment in the District.

A graduating senior who has attended the District high school for the preceding two years shall be permitted to remain until the end of the school year without applying for a transfer.

Transfer Requests

A nonresident student wishing to transfer into the District shall file an application for transfer each school year with the Superintendent or designee. Transfers shall be granted for one regular school year at a time.

Factors

In approving transfers, the Superintendent or designee shall consider availability of space and instructional staff and the student's disciplinary history and attendance records.

Transfer Agreements

A transfer student shall be notified in the written transfer agreement that he or she must follow all rules and regulations of the District. Violation of the terms of the agreement may result in a transfer request not being approved the following year.

Tuition

If the District charges tuition, the amount shall be set by the Board, within statutory limits.

Waivers

The Board may waive tuition for a student based on financial hardship upon written application by the student, parent, or guardian. [See FP]

Nonpayment

The District may initiate withdrawal of students whose tuition payments are delinquent.

Appeals

Any appeals shall be made in accordance with FNG(LOCAL) and GF(LOCAL), as appropriate.
