R 2230 Admission of Resident Students

The Superintendent/designee is responsible for ensuring that all pre-registration residency, waiver requests, and prior discipline forms are completed and maintained as District records.

A student may only register in the District if the student provides proof of residency or if the student or parent/guardian requests a waiver from the Board of Education on the basis of hardship or good sense. A Residency Enrollment Checklist (Form 2230) and Affidavit Regarding Prior Discipline (Regulation 2664 - Enrollment or Return Following Suspension and/or Expulsion.)


Students or parents/guardians seeking a waiver of the District's residency requirement must complete and submit to the Superintendent a Request for Waiver of Proof of Residency (Form 2230.1) stating the reasons for which the waiver is requested. If a waiver is requested, the Board of Education, or a committee of the Board appointed by the Board President, must convene a hearing no later than forty-five (45) days after the request for waiver is filed with the Superintendent. If the District fails to convene a timely hearing, the request for waiver is automatically granted. Following the hearing, the Board will provide written notice of its decision and the reasons for its approval or denial of the waiver request.

In considering whether a waiver to residency should be granted, the presumption that a student's domicile is in the home of the student's parent/guardian is not conclusive. Students residing within the District, but not within the domicile of their parent/guardian, will be considered residents of the District if they reside within the District for reasons other than solely to attend District schools.

Records Review

Within two (2) business days of enrolling a new student, the Superintendent/designee will request copies of the new student's transfer and discipline records from all schools in which the new student attended at any time within a twelve (12) month period preceding enrollment in the District. In addition, parents/guardians of students new to the District will be required to complete and sign the Affidavit Regarding Prior Discipline informing the District of suspensions or expulsions incurred at schools previously attended.

However, as provided in Policy and Regulation 2664 - Enrollment or Return Following Suspension and/or Expulsion, no student will be enrolled who has been convicted of or charged without final adjudication of the following criminal acts or the corresponding juvenile offenses:

  1. First degree murder.

  2. Second degree murder.

  3. First degree assault.

  5. Forcible sodomy.

  6. Robbery in the first degree.

  7. Distribution of drugs to a minor.

  8. Arson in the first degree.

  9. Kidnapping (Class A felony).

  10. Statutory rape.

  11. Statutory sodomy.

This provision does not apply to a disabled student who is convicted or adjudicated guilty as a result of conduct related to the student's disability.
