All persons age 6 and under 21 who have not graduated from high school or received any document evidencing completion of the equivalent of a secondary curriculum (G.E.D.), and who reside within the boundaries of the district may be permitted to attend public schools without payment of tuition. In addition, persons who do not reside in the district may be admitted under the Board policy/regulation relating to nonresident students. (JFBA/JFBA-R).

A birth certificate or other proof of legal age, as well as proof of residence, will be required by the school administration.

Except as otherwise provided by state law concerning enrollment of students in out-of-home placement, students new to the district will be enrolled conditionally until records, including discipline records, from the schools previously attended by the student are received by the district. Notice of the conditional enrollment status of new students will be clearly indicated on all new student enrollment forms. In the event the student’s records indicate a reason to deny admission, the student’s conditional enrollment status will be revoked. The student’s parent/guardian will be provided with written notice of the denial of enrollment. The notice will inform the parent/guardian of the right to request a hearing.

Denial of Admission

The Board of Education or the superintendent or designee may deny admission to the schools of the district in accordance with applicable law.

The Board will provide due process of law to students and parents/guardians through written procedures consistent with law for denial of admission to a student.

The policy and procedures for denial of admission will be the same as those for student suspension and expulsion inasmuch as the same section of the law governs these areas.


The Board, the superintendent, other administrators, and district employees will not discriminate based on a person’s actual or perceived characteristics such as, but not limited to, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, immigration/citizenship status, age, marital status, conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth, genetic information, mental or physical disability, need for special education services, or any other protected class in conformance with federal, state, and local law in admission or access to or treatment and employment in, its programs or activities. A lack of English skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation.
