FDA(LOCAL) - ADMISSIONS: INTERDISTRICT TRANSFERS

Transfer Requests

A nonresident student shall not be permitted to attend District schools except as provided below.

Exceptions

A resident student who becomes a nonresident during the final grading period of a semester shall be permitted to continue in attendance for the remainder of the semester.

Kindergarten –Grade 8

Any student in kindergarten–grade 8 who moves outside the District may apply to remain enrolled for the remainder of the school year on a tuition basis as long as the enrollment does not place the class/school in violation of the maximum class size allowed by law.

Grades 9–12

Any student in grades 9–12 who moves outside the District may apply to remain enrolled for the remainder of high school on a tuition basis.

Children of Nonresident Employees

A nonresident employee may request that his or her child be admitted into District schools by filing an application with the Superintendent or designee. Transfers shall be granted for one regular school year at a time, on a tuition-free basis.

When the parent or guardian is no longer employed by the District, the student may continue his or her enrollment in the District until the end of the semester in which the employment termination took place.

Factors

In approving transfers, the Superintendent or designee shall consider availability of space and instructional staff, student transportation issues, the intended duration of the transfer, 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 and the student's program, as applicable. Violation of the terms of the agreement may result in a transfer request not being approved the following year.

Bryan Collegiate High School

A student enrolled at Bryan Collegiate High School prior to June 1, 2018, who does not reside in the District may complete the program without annually reapplying for transfer so long as the student continues to meet the terms of the transfer agreement. Violation of the terms of the agreement may result in revocation of transfer to Bryan Collegiate High School effective at the end of the school year.

Tuition

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

Waivers

The Superintendent or designee 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.
