The parent, guardian, or legal custodian of a student receiving competent private instruction may also enroll the student into the school district in accordance with state law and policy. The student will be considered under dual enrollment.
The parent, guardian, or legal custodian requesting dual enrollment for the student should notify the board secretary prior to the third Friday of September each year on forms provided by the school district. On the form, they will indicate the co/extra-curricular and academic activities in which the student is interested in participating. The forms are available at the central administration office. After the student notifies the school district what activities they wish to participate in, the school district will provide information regarding the specific programs.
A dual enrollment student is eligible to participate in the district’s co/extra-curricular and academic activities in the same manner as other students enrolled in the school district. The policies and administrative rules of the district will apply to dual enrollment students in the same manner as the other students enrolled in the school district. These policies and administrative rules will include but not be limited to athletic eligibility requirements, the good conduct rule, academic eligibility requirements, and the payment of the fees required for participation.
A dual enrollment student whose parent or legal custodian has chosen standardized testing as the form of the student's annual assessment will not be responsible for the cost of the test or the administration of the test.
The applicable legal requirements for dual enrollment including but not limited to those related to reporting and eligibility will be followed. It is the responsibility of the superintendent [or designee] to develop administrative regulations regarding this policy.
