By clicking ‘Submit’ on the form, the undersigned parent or lawful custodian acknowledges that the statements and information above are true and correct; that this request, if approved, will be valid only for the school year indicated above; and agrees to abide by the provisions of the Board Policy. We do hereby acknowledge that we reside outside the district boundaries and it is understood that it is our responsibility to meet a USD 473 bus on an established bus route to the Attendance Center or provide our own Transportation.
The superintendent shall assign students to the appropriate building. Any student desiring to attend a school outside the attendance area in which the student resides may do so only with prior written permission of the superintendent. Assignment to a particular grade level or particular classes shall be determined by the building principal based on the education abilities of the student.
