Students living outside of USD 307 may enroll only after they apply and are accepted by administration. The five areas that will be checked on by administration are (1) discipline (2) academic performance (3) attendance (4) supervision and (5) bills.
After being accepted, a student developing problems in any of these aforementioned areas may have the privilege of attending revoked. The five areas will be evaluated each nine weeks to determine if the student is to be allowed to continue attendance in this district. NOTE: After September 20 all requests for out-of-district enrollment must be approved by board action.
WITHDRAWAL FROM SCHOOL
In order for all necessary records to be completed, parents or legal guardians should notify the principal's office stating their intentions to withdraw their son/daughter from school. The notice should be given at least two days before the move. Students are required to turn in all books on the last day of attendance. All bills must be paid before leaving school.
FULL COURSE SCHEDULE REQUIRED
All students, grades 7-12 are required to enroll in a full course schedule. This schedule must be maintained in order to participate in activities and other special programs supervised by the school. Exceptions must have administrative approval.
After the final enrollment for the school semester, schedule changes will be considered only under the following conditions:
The request has been made by the principal or a teacher to meet the special needs of the students, school or staff.
The request has been made by the student and parent on or before the 3rd day of the first semester for first semester changes, and during the last week of the first semester for second semester changes.
Pre-enrollment changes must be made five (5) days before the last day of school.
To initiate changes, the student must complete the necessary Class Change Form. This form is available from the school counselor.
Students who have failed a class will be allowed to attempt the class at The Learning Center or other institution.
For the purpose of classification of high school students the following will apply:
In order for a student to be granted permission to take vocational or college classes off campus during regular school hours, the student must be on schedule to graduate with the rest of his/her class. All required classes should have a passing grade.
If a student fails a required class while attending off campus classes, he/she will lose the privilege of leaving campus during regular school hours to take classes.
Students dropping Vo-Tech courses are responsible for the tuition costs of classes dropped.
Juniors and seniors may attend classes at the Salina Vocational-Technical School during the first periods of the morning. Students will attend Vo-Tech from 7:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. and will receive 3 credits per semester.
Programs available to high school students are available from the counselor upon request. All programs require two years to complete. Students interested in vo-tech classes must make prior arrangements with the school counselor and must fill out an application to Salina Area Technical School and must pay the registration fees. Class sizes are limited; therefore, students should apply in January of their sophomore year.
Students may take classes at KSU-Salina or at Kansas Wesleyan University (classes other than those offered at Ell-Saline High) as classes work into schedules. Students and parents are responsible for enrolling the students and providing proof to the counselor that the student is enrolled. Arrangements will then be made through the principal’s office for the student’s daily arrival and departure times so that all parties are aware of the whereabouts of the student during the school day. On-line courses are available for students. Arrangements will be made through the principal.
Seniors may do an internship for two class periods a day in a career field that interests them. This should be a non-paying arrangement. Students interested in an internship should contact the counselor as early as possible in the junior year so that paperwork can be filed and arrangements made through the school to careers consortium at the Smoky Hill Education Service Center. All internships should be finalized by early April of the junior year or November of the senior year.
Students enrolling in Vo-Tech will receive dual credit. Students enrolling in the KSU college classes at Ell-Saline High School will be issued dual credit and the hours will be counted toward graduation requirements. College classes, or college on-line classes, taken during the summer or on campus during the regular school year will not be counted toward Ell-Saline graduation requirements. Exceptions will be evaluated on an individual basis if this situation interferes with an internship possibility or if a student has taken all available classes in a given academic area. All grades received in Vo-Tech and college courses taken for dual credit will also be included in a student “cumulative grade point average”.
