The Board may admit otherwise eligible students who are not receiving special education and who have not yet attained 21 years of age prior to the beginning of the current school year if he/she is  shown to be in need of additional education in order to receive a diploma or a modified diploma. These students may attend school without paying tuition for the remainder of the school year.

A student with disabilities shall be considered a resident of the District in which the child’s parent or guardian resides under criteria identified in Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 339.134.

Students with disabilities voluntarily placed outside the home by his/her parent or guardian may continue to attend the school the student was attending prior to the placement as a district resident, when the student’s parent or guardian and school staff can demonstrate it is in the student’s best interest.

The Board will deny regular school admission to students who have become residents and who are under expulsion from another school district for reasons other than a weapons policy violation.

The Board shall deny for at least one calendar year from the date of the expulsion regular school admission to students who have become residents and who are under expulsion from another school district for a weapons policy violation.

The Board may, based on district criteria, provide alternative programs of instruction to students expelled for a weapons policy violation.
