Code No.: 606.4
The parent, guardian, or custodian of a student receiving competent private instruction may also enroll
the student in the school district in accordance with state law and policy. The student is considered
under dual enrollment. The parent, guardian, or custodian requesting dual enrollment for the student
should notify the board secretary no later than September 15 of the school year in which dual enrollment
is sought on forms provided by the school district. On the form, they will indicate the extracurricular
and academic activities in which the student is interested in participating. The forms are available at the
central administration office.
A dual enrollment student is eligible to participate in the school district’s extracurricular and academic
activities in the same manner as other students enrolled in the school district. The policies and
administrative rules of the school district will apply to the dual enrollment students in the same manner
as the other students enrolled the school district. These policies and administrative rules will include,
but not be limited to, athletic eligibility requirements, the good conduct rule, academic eligibility
requirements, and payment of applicable fees.
A dual enrollment student whose parent, guardian, or custodian has chosen standardized testing as the
form of the student’s annual assessment will not be responsible for the cost of the test or the
administration of the test.
After the student notifies the school district which activities in which they wish to participate, the school
district will provide information regarding the specific programs.
The applicable legal requirements for dual enrollment including, but not limited to those related to
reporting and eligibility, shall be followed. It is the responsibility of the superintendent to develop
administrative regulations regarding this policy.
