5122 - POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS

The Board of Education will extend the privilege of postgraduate study to high school graduates of this District upon proper application and the satisfaction of the following conditions:

 A.candidate's past scholastic and behavioral conduct predicts success in the selected postgraduate courses

 B.needs of regularly enrolled students are being met

 C.classroom space and instructional staff are available

 D.continued attendance, satisfactory performance in the program, and appropriate conduct

The Board will not assume responsibility for the transportation of students pursuing postgraduate studies.

The Board requires that each postgraduate student pay tuition to attend classes unless the student meets the requirements for the District to receive State aid for his/her participation.

The Superintendent shall prepare administrative guidelines to implement such programs and which include eligibility requirements for participation in both curricular and co-curricular programs.

No student enrolled as a post-graduate student may participate in any athletic program unless s/he meets the requirements of the State and the Michigan High School Athletic Association.

If the Board determines during the first semester of a school year that space will be available for a Schools of Choice Program and students, other than those already entitled to preference because they made timely application before the school year began, can be enrolled for the second semester, then the District will accept applications and enroll qualifying nonresident students provided those nonresidents comply with the registration deadlines established in the administrative guidelines.

Before a contiguous district student who is eligible for special education programs and services will be accepted, there must be a separate written agreement between the district of residence and the accepting district specifying the responsibility for paying the added costs of the special education programs and services.

Enrollment is not available to any nonresident student who has been suspended, expelled or otherwise released or excluded from his/her home district for disciplinary reasons.
