FDA(LOCAL) - ADMISSIONS: INTERDISTRICT TRANSFERS
Note: This local policy has been revised in accordance with the District's innovation plan.
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 the District discovers that a resident student has become a nonresident, the District shall initiate withdrawal of the student; however, the student shall be permitted to apply for a transfer to continue enrollment for the remainder of the school year.
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.
In approving transfers, the Superintendent or designee shall consider availability of space and instructional staff and the student's disciplinary history and attendance records.
A transfer student shall be notified in the written transfer agreement that he or she must follow all rules and regulations of the District.
In accordance with the District's innovation plan, the District shall be exempt from state law requiring a transfer to be for a one-year period.
In accordance with the District's transfer guidelines, the Superintendent may revoke a student's transfer at any time during a school year if the student does not meet the state standard of 90 percent attendance, is assigned to in-school or out-of-school suspension or placement in the disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP), is expelled, or is at risk of academic failure.
If the District charges tuition, the amount shall be set by the Board, within statutory limits.
The Board may waive tuition for a student based on financial hardship upon written application by the student, parent, or guardian. [See FP]
The District may initiate withdrawal of students whose tuition payments are delinquent.
Any appeals shall be made in accordance with FNG(LOCAL) and GF(LOCAL), as appropriate.
