If it is determined that a school has capacity to accept nonresident or resident transfer pupils, they must be placed into one of the following priority groups:
a. Resident transfer and nonresident transfer pupils who currently are in the last grade of a feeder school to the school at which the application is made.
b. Resident transfer pupils who do not currently attend the school or feeder school.
a. Nonresident pupils who do not currently attend the school or a feeder school.
All qualified applicants must be admitted to the extent that excess capacity exists.
The following procedure will be applied to determine admittance of qualified applicants. Based on the determination of the capacity of each school any additional capacity shall be quantified as “available open enrollment slots.”
It should be noted that applicant acceptance does not guarantee the applicant’s placement into a given program except for those pupils whose eligibility is defined by applicable state or federal law. Once accepted by the school, placement of pupils from outside a school’s attendance area will follow the process for program placement outlined for all pupils attending that school.
Transportation will not be provided to any student who lives outside the boundaries of the school of enrollment as set forth in A.R.S. 15-816. Exceptions are special education students whose Individualized Education Plans require it and those approved by the Superintendent.
As a condition of acceptance, the parents or legal guardian and the pupil must agree to comply with all district policies including homework, pupil conduct, attendance, and minimum enrollment commitments, so long as these also apply to resident pupils. These standards of acceptance shall not include previous academic achievement, previous athletic or extra-curricular ability, proficiency in the English language, disability conditions.
A school is not required to admit a pupil who has been expelled, is in the process of being expelled, or who is not in compliance with a condition of disciplinary action imposed by another school, school district, or the juvenile court.
It is the principal’s discretion whether or not to accept students who have had previous discipline or attendance problems.
Eligibility for athletics and extracurricular activity is affected when students transfer from one school to another. Students considering transfer must contact the Athletic Director at the High School to determine eligibility status in relation to the possible transfer.
