For purposes of this policy, person acting as a parent means a guardian or conservator, a person who has actual care and control of the child and provides a major portion of support or a person who has actual care and control of the child with written consent of a person who has legal custody of the child.




  1. Non-Resident Students: Non-resident students are those who do not meet the definition of a resident student. Since schools are maintained for the primary benefit of the residents of the district, non-resident students may be admitted only to the extent that staff, facilities, equipment and supplies are available.

Nor will this district accept any student on probation, under suspension or expulsion, or having past or present discipline or attendance problems. Any non-resident student who desires to be admitted to the schools of the district will make application to the superintendent. The superintendent of schools may admit or deny admittance to out-of-district students under circumstances determined by the superintendent to be in the best interest of U.S.D.
