Denial or Discontinued Enrollment of Transfer Students

In compliance with state statute IC 20-26-11-32(j) and district policy 5111, a request for an out-of-district student to transfer to Scott County School District 2 may be denied, discontinued in the current or subsequent school year, or may be subject to terms or conditions for current or continued enrollment, if the student:

1. has been suspended or expelled:
a. for any reason(s) a total of ten (10) or more school day during the preceding  twelve (12) months; or,
b. for possession of a firearm, deadly weapon, or a destructive device; or,
c. for causing physical injury to a student, a school employee, or a school visitor; or,
d. for a violation of the school’s drug or alcohol rules; or,
2. has a history of unexcused absences and the school district believes that, based upon the location of the student’s residence, attendance would be a problem for the student if enrolled or continued to be enrolled.

The above-referenced state statute and district policy, as well as these written guidelines, apply to the enrollment of out-of-district transfer students at Scott County School District 2 and does not impact the student’s ability to enroll in the school district in which they legally reside.
