604.7 Dual Enrollment

The parent, guardian, legal or actual custodian of a student receiving competent private instruction may also enroll the student in the school district. The student shall be considered under dual enrollment. Parents, guardians, legal or actual custodians requesting dual enrollment for their 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. The forms are available at the superintendent's 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 in the school district. These policies and administrative rules shall include, but not be limited to, athletic eligibility requirements, the good conduct rule, academic eligibility requirements, and payment of the fees required for participation.

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.

It is the responsibility of the dual enrollment student to inform the school district of the extracurricular and academic activities in which the student wishes to participate.

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.
