FDA(LOCAL) - ADMISSIONS: INTERDISTRICT TRANSFERS

Note: This local policy has been revised in accordance with the District's innovation plan.

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.

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

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. Transfer applications shall be accepted from March 1 through April 30. Transfers shall be granted for one regular school year at a time.

Factors

In approving transfers, the Superintendent or designee shall consider non-resident student transfer applications in the order received, except applications for non-resident students of District employees shall be considered first. The applications shall be considered taking into account the following factors:

Transfer Agreements

A transfer student shall be notified in the written District non-resident enrollment agreement that he or she is subject to all guidelines applicable to non-resident transfer students and must follow all rules and regulations of the District.

In accordance with the District's innovation plan, the District is exempt from state law requiring transfers to be for a one-year period. Therefore, violation of the terms of the agreement may result in revocation of the agreement during the school year or 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 of the denial of a new or renewal application shall be made in accordance with FNG(LOCAL) and GF(LOCAL), as appropriate.
