5113.03 - SCHOOL CHOICE OPTIONS PROVIDED BY THE NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT

The Board of Education acknowledges that the Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 ("NCLBA") provides that the parents/guardians of students enrolled in a Title I school the first year following the building’s identification as being in "School Improvement" (as defined by the Ohio Department of Education), have the right to transfer their children to another school in the District, provided there is a school that provides instruction at the students’ grade level(s) and such school has not been identified as being in the process of school improvement, corrective action, or restructuring. The Superintendent shall also offer Supplemental Educational Services (SES) to students in any school no later than the first year following the building’s identification as being in "School Improvement," regardless of whether a transfer option is available.

Additionally, students attending a "persistently dangerous" school, as defined by State law have the right to transfer to another "safe" school in the District.

Furthermore, a student who is a victim of a "violent crime" on school property also has the right to transfer to another school.

The Board of Education authorizes such transfers in accordance with established administrative guidelines.

Children who transfer in accordance with this policy will be permitted to remain at the school of transfer until completing the highest grade at the school.
