- No additional facilities or staff will be needed to accommodate them and the class size will be kept within the desired number.
- Individual non-resident student enrollment will be determined on a year-to-year basis. Approval for any one year is not authorization to attend a following year.

The children of families who have signed a contract to buy, build or rent a residence in the District may be enrolled in the district.

The Superintendent, or designee reserves the right to extend this timeline for extenuating circumstances.
Regularly enrolled children of former residents shall be permitted to complete any school year. At the end of the school year, they shall be classified as non-residents and subject to the rules pertaining to out-of-District residents.

The tuition and guidelines will be determined by the two involved district per a written agreement. Approval for any one year is not authorization to attend a following year.
Tuition charges for summer school shall be based upon the actual costs incurred in operation, and are not intended to provide a financial profit for the District. Tuition may be waived if it is determined that the family of an individual pupil is indigent or that the educational needs of the pupil require attendance at such courses.
