School City of East Chicago
Bylaws & Policies


The School Board recognizes the positive cultural benefits to the students, staff, and the community in meeting students from other countries and in having foreign students as members of the student body of this Corporation.

The Board will permit the admission of foreign students who have received permission from the Corporation to attend school prior to entering the United States and foreign-exchange students who are participating in student exchange programs approved by the State Board of Education and whose host family resides in this Corporation. All students in both categories, whose host family does not reside in the Corporation, shall be eligible for admission on the same basis as other nonresident students.

The number of resident or nonresident foreign-exchange students shall be determined in the Superintendent's administrative guidelines.
