Newport-Mesa USD | BP 5117 Students
The Governing Board recognizes that students who reside in one district may choose to attend school in another district and that such choices are made for a variety of reasons.
The Board desires to communicate with parents/guardians and students regarding the district's educational programs and services.
Upon request by students' parents/guardians, the Superintendent or designee may approve interdistrict attendance permits with other districts on a case-by-case basis to meet individual student needs.
The district reserves the right to deny requests for interdistrict transfers if it places a financial burden on the district and/or a school has reached its capacity.
The Superintendent or designee may deny interdistrict attendance permits because of overcrowding within district schools or limited district resources.
If an interdistrict attendance transfer is granted under Education Code 46600, students will not need to reapply for an interdistrict transfer, and the student shall be allowed to continue to attend the school in which he or she is enrolled, except as specified below.
If the district of residence and district of attendance have entered into an agreement for interdistrict attendance, the agreement may contain standards for reapplication that may not allow continued attendance. The agreement may also stipulate terms and conditions under which the interdistrict permit may be revoked.
Neither a district of residence nor a district of attendance may rescind existing transfer permits for pupils entering grade 12 for the following school year.
Open Enrollment Act
Commencing in the 2011-2012 school year, and upon application by parents/guardians of students whose school of residence appears on the State-adopted Open Enrollment List, the Superintendent or designee may approve attendance at a district school with a higher Academic Performance Index.
The district reserves the right to deny requests for Open Enrollment Act transfers based on the capacity of a program, class, grade level, school building, or adverse financial impact.
