- Consent for up to 30 additional resident students to attend school in another school district in Oregon.
North Wasco County School District may enroll nonresident students as follows:
Court Placement: If a juvenile court determines it is in the student's best interest, a student placed in a substitute care program outside the district may continue to be considered a resident student and allowed to attend the last school the student attended prior to placement. The public agency placing the student in a substitute care program will be responsible for the transportation of the student, if public agency funds are available.
The Board shall deny regular school admission to nonresident students who are under expulsion from another district for a weapons policy violation. The Board or designee may, based on district criteria, deny admssion to nonresident students who are under expulsion from another district for reasons other than a weapons policy violation.
Transfer requests for returning or new students are not guaranteed. The School Board or designee reserves the right to accept/reject nonresident students based upon the availability of space, resources, personnel and appropriate programs. If the number of students seeking consent exceeds the number of spaces, the Board or designee will use an equitable lottery selection process.
