• District Transfer Request for the 2017-2018 school year
     
    North Wasco County School District is allowed to consider students whose legal residence is not within North Wasco County SD's boundaries but who would like to attend, or, students whose legal residence is within North Wasco County SD's boundaries but would like to attend another Oregon school district.
     
    North Wasco County School District Board of Directors, at their February 9th, 2017 School Board Meeting, approved for the 2017-2018 school year:
    • Consent for up to 10 additional nonresident students to attend school in North Wasco County School District, and
    • Consent for up to 10 additional resident students to attend school in another school district in Oregon.
     
    North Wasco County School District may enroll nonresident students as follows:
    1. By written consent of the affected school boards, the student becomes a "resident pupil" of the attending district thereby allowing the attending district to receive State School Fund moneys;
    2.  
    3. By written consent from the school board with which the student has made application for admission, the student becomes a "resident pupil" of the attending district thereby allowing the attending district to receive State School Fund moneys;
    4.  
    5. By unilaterally admitting with tuition a nonresident student whereby neither district is eligible for State School Fund moneys;
    6.  
    7. 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.
    8.  
    9. The Board or designee shall deny admission to nonresident students who are under expulsion from another district for a weapons policy violation or under expulsion for reasons other than a weapons policy violation.
    10.  
    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. 
     
    Please noteOregon school districts may only transfer students within Oregon.  The request for nonresident admission form must be completely filled out and submitted no later than April 1st of each year.  By May 1st, North Wasco County School District shall provide written notification of admission of a nonresident student into the district.  Transportation to and from the attending school is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
