Note: For definitions applying to this policy, see FDA(REGULATION).

No Interdistrict Transfers

Nonresident students shall not be permitted to attend District schools except as provided below.

Exceptions

Resident students who become nonresidents during the course of a grading period shall be permitted to continue in attendance for the remainder of the grading period. Resident students in grade 12 who become nonresidents during the course of the senior year shall be permitted to continue in attendance for the remainder of the school year, in accordance with the procedures and requirements in FDA(REGULATION).

If a resident student temporarily becomes a nonresident student because of the renovation or construction of a residence within the District, he or she shall be permitted to continue in attendance at the student's school tuition-free for the remainder of the school year, in accordance with the procedures and requirements in FDA (REGULATION).

Under limited circumstances, a nonresident student who is in the process of becoming a resident student shall be permitted to enroll in a District school in accordance with the procedures and requirements in FDA(REGULATION).

A nonresident full-time professional contract 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, in accordance with the procedures and requirements in FDA(REGULATION).

If a nonresident full-time professional contract employee separates from employment with the District during the school year, his or her children shall be permitted to continue in attendance in the same manner as noted above for a resident student who becomes a nonresident, in accordance with the procedures and requirements in FDA(REGULATION).

Factors

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

Approval of a student's transfer request for one year shall in no way imply that approval in subsequent years or for siblings or members of the same family will be automatically granted.

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 withdraw students whose tuition payments are delinquent.

Appeals

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