6023 Relations with Non-WPPS Students

Relations with Non-WPPS Students

 

Non-Accredited Schools

The Board of Education finds that allowing students who elect to receive their education in a non-accredited private and/or home school under Title 92 of the Nebraska Administrative Code, Chapter 13 to participate in the curricular or extracurricular programs of the school district would create significant administrative difficulties for the district.  Those difficulties include, but are not limited to:

 

·         accommodating students on a selective basis

·         the problems posed by admitting students to courses for which they had not completed prerequisite courses

·         the impossibility of testing them for participation in such courses

·         the increased burden on teachers and administrators

·         the rules and regulations of the Nebraska State Activities Association, which require schools to monitor the academic eligibility of students who participate in extracurricular activities

 

Therefore, such students will not be allowed to participate in the district’s curricular programs on a part-time basis (e.g., a home-school student may not take a high school chemistry class) except for state and/or federally-mandated special education services.  They will not be allowed to participate in any of the district’s extracurricular activities.

 

Textbooks shall not be made available to home schools that exist under the guidelines of the Nebraska Department of Education.

 

Accredited Schools

The Board of Education understands the importance of the relationship with private accredited schools.  However, the Board further understands its commitment to the students of West Point Public Schools and will not support these relationships at the expense of public school students.

 

The following guidelines are devised to appreciate the relationships, while maintaining the District’s student support:

 

1)    Once a class provided by West Point Public Schools (WPPS) reaches 80% of the class capacity, as determined by the administration; the class will no longer be offered to non-WPPS students.

2)    Non-WPPS students wishing to enroll in WPPS classes must first receive approval from the Board.  This permission must be received prior to the regularly scheduled meeting of the BOE in August.  Permission may be granted to: the student or the student’s representative (private school counselor or administrator).

3)    Non-WPPS students enrolled in WPPS classes are required to follow all rules and regulations established by the Board, administration, and/or the classroom teacher.

4)    Transportation to and from WPPS to non-WPPS students is provided as a privilege.
