Admission and Denial of Admission

 

All persons age 5 through 20 who reside within the boundaries of this school district may attend public schools without payment of tuition.  In addition, persons who do not reside in the district may be admitted under Board policies relating to nonresident students or by specific action of the Board.

 

A birth certificate or other proof of legal age, as well as proof of residence, may be required by the school administration.

 

All students new to the district, including kindergarten students and first graders shall be urged to have a physical examination and to submit a report from the examining physician on a form provided by the district.

 

The Board of Education may establish fees for evening high school, summer school, adult education, or community education.

 

Denial of admission

 

The Board of Education or the superintendent may deny admission to the schools of the district for cause.  The grounds for denial of admission shall be those established by law.  (See Exhibit JF-E)

 

Students who were expelled from any school district during the preceding 12 months or whose behavior during the preceding 12 months in another school district was detrimental to the welfare or safety of other students or school personnel may be denied admission.

 

Pursuant to Colorado law, an expelled student shall be prohibited from enrolling or re-enrolling in the same school in which the victim of the offense or member of the victim’s immediate family is enrolled or employed when:

 

  1. The expelled student is convicted of a crime, adjudicated a juvenile delinquent, receives a deferred judgment or is placed in a diversion program as a result of committing the offense for which the student was expelled.

 

  1. There is an identifiable victim of the expelled student’s offense.

 

  1. The offense for which the student was expelled does not constitute a crime against property.

 

If the district has no actual knowledge of the name of the victim, the expelled student shall be prohibited from enrolling or re-enrolling only upon request of the victim or a member of the victim’s immediate family.

 

 

 

The Board shall provide due process of law to students and parents/guardians through written procedures consistent with law for denial of admission to a student.

 

The policy and procedures for denial of admission shall be the same as those for student suspension and expulsion inasmuch as the same section of the law governs these areas.

 

NOTE:  In any district that has only one school in which the expelled student can enroll, the district shall either prohibit the student from enrolling or design a schedule that, to the extent possible, avoids contact between the expelled student and the victim or victim’s family.
