5120 - ASSIGNMENT OF STUDENTS TO SCHOOLS, CLASSES, GRADES, AND PROGRAMS WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT

Article 8, Section 1 of the Indiana Constitution establishes an Indiana studentís right to a tuition free education in an Indiana public school district. The Indiana Legal Settlement statute, I.C. 20-26-11, establishes which Indiana public school district(s) a student has a right to attend. Attendance at a particular school or program is established by Board Policy 5120 and this administrative guideline that implements that Board policy. All inquiries regarding student assignment shall initially be directed to the Principal of the school the student is assigned to attend.

School, Grade Level, and Program Assignment/Transfer

Student assignment to a school shall be determined by the attendance areas established by the Board. Changes in attendance areas may be made by the Board as needed.

When feasible, students from the same household will be assigned to the same school, but these students may be assigned to different schools or programs when necessary.

Whenever possible, written commitments to a parent/guardian in earlier years will be given priority in the process of assigning students. Placement policies and procedures will be reviewed each school year by principals and recommendations for adjustments to these policies shall be submitted in writing to the Superintendent when necessary.

Such determinations will be made individually by the building principals of the schools.
