Relations with Non-Accredited Private or Home School Students
The board of education finds that allowing students who elect to receive their education in a non-accredited private and/or home school under Title 92 of the Nebraska Administrative Code, Chapter 13 to participate in the curricular or extracurricular programs of the school district would create significant administrative difficulties for the district.† Those difficulties include, but are not limited to:
∑ accommodating students on a selective basis
∑ the problems posed by admitting students to courses for which they had not completed prerequisite courses
∑ the impossibility of testing them for participation in such courses
∑ the increased burden on teachers and administrators
∑ the rules and regulations of the Nebraska State Activities Association, which require schools to monitor the academic eligibility of students who participate in extracurricular activities
Therefore, such students will not be allowed to participate in the districtís curricular programs on a part-time basis (e.g., a home-school student may not take a high school chemistry class) except for state and/or federally-mandated special education services.† They will not be allowed to participate in any of the districtís extracurricular activities.
Textbooks shall not be made available to home schools that exist under the guidelines of the Nebraska Department of Education.
