602.3 - Dual Enrollment

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 Linn-Mar Teaching & Learning Department prior to September 1st of each year on forms provided by the school district. On the form, the parent/guardian or legal custodian will indicate the co/extra-curricular and academic activities in which the student is interested in participating. After the student notifies the district of what activities they wish to participate in, the district will provide information regarding the specific programs.

The forms are available on the district website at:

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/guardian 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.
