Admission of Students Who Reside Out of the State of Nebraska†
Students who reside in a state other than Nebraska must submit an application to enroll in the district at least three weeks prior to the beginning of the semester in which they wish to begin attending the district.† Out of state students may not enroll mid-semester.
The administration will review each application and will admit out-of-state students whose academic history, disciplinary records and prior school community involvement indicate that they will be successful in this school district.† Those who have verified disabilities pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act or section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act will not be excluded from admission based solely on their disability.† However, those who need specialized programming or whose enrollment would require the hiring of additional staff or specific training of existing staff will not be admitted.† The administrationís approval or disapproval of an out-of-state studentís application is final.† †
Out-of-state students who are admitted pursuant to this policy must meet the requirements of board policy 5002 and must comply with each board policy, state statute and regulation that applies to their situation.† Once admitted, they will be subject to the same disciplinary rules and procedures as resident students.† Students must reapply for admission prior to each semester.† Re-admission may be denied for students who are not academically and/or behaviorally successful.† Once admitted, out-of-state studentsí grade level placement will be determined in accordance with district policy.
Out-of-state students are not entitled to transportation or reimbursement for transportation.
Out-of-state students will be charged tuition of $250.00 per semester by the district.† Payment in full is due to the central office of the district on or before the first day of classes each semester.† The tuition fee may be changed by the board of education prior to any semester with or without notice to the out-of-state studentís family or resident school district.
