5002 admission of students

Students shall be admitted to the school district who are:

  • legal residents of the school district or otherwise entitled by Nebraska law to attend the schools of the district tuition-free;

  • approved for option enrollment pursuant to policy;

  • approved as foreign exchange students pursuant to policy;

  • legal residents of a district that has contracted with this district for their educational services;

  • statutorily entitled to attend the schools of the district on a part- time basis pursuant to policy; or

  • out-of-state students who have been enrolled pursuant to policy.

    Students who have been placed in a foster home within the school district are not residents of the district and will not be permitted to enroll unless the district has received a written determination from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services that it is in the best interests of the student not to attend his or her district of residence.

    Prior to enrolling any student who is a ward of the state of Nebraska or a ward of any court, the district will ask to review a completed copy of the “Education Court Report Form” promulgated by the Nebraska Supreme Court’s Commission on Children and Families in the Courts – Education Sub-Committee. If there is no such completed form, district staff will offer assistance to the appropriate responsible individual in securing the information necessary to complete the form as part of the district’s enrollment process.

    Except in adult education classes or when otherwise required by law, no student who is of 21 years of age or older, or who has earned a high school diploma or its equivalent will be allowed to be enrolled in or continue to attend school in the district.

    Students who seek to enroll in the district must comply with each board policy, state statute and regulation that applies to their situation. Grade level placement will be determined in accordance with district policy.
