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 a school year shall be permitted to continue in attendance only upon submitting an official transfer request.

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.

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.

Transportation

The Superintendent is authorized to provide transportation services to transfer students; however, transportation routes shall not extend more than 35 miles from District boundaries and shall not cross state lines.

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.
