Code: JECC
Adopted: 8/13/97                                                                                                                                                  Revised/Readopted: 5/2018; 11/16/22

A student shall be required to attend the school serving his/her place of residence. Exceptions to the policy may be granted under the following conditions:

1. A student changing place of residence within district boundaries during the school year may continue in the school of enrollment until the end of the current year;
2. A student who anticipates moving to a different school assignment area may be admitted in that school upon presentation of satisfactory evidence to the administration showing that the move will be made within the grading period during which the admission is requested;
3. A student whose educational interest would be better served in another school, as determined by the administration;
4. A student who becomes a victim of a violent criminal offense while in or on the grounds of a school the student attends, or any student attending a district school that is identified by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) as persistently dangerous may, as required by Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), transfer to a safe district school as defined by law.

Students granted transfers will comply with the building and classroom rules of the receiving school.

In the event of an attendance change not required by ESSA or other state law, parents shall take the responsibility of providing transportation. Students may ride buses if buses are available and have sufficient room. Students transferring schools pursuant to the provisions of ESSA will be provided with district transportation.
