Continued Enrollment Guidelines

When is a Continued Enrollment application appropriate?

A student who moves out of a school’s attendance area during a school year may request permission to remain at the school for the duration of the school year by submitting an Application for Continued Enrollment to the campus principal. In order to be considered for approval, an Application for Continued Enrollment may be submitted prior to the move but must be submitted no more than 10 days after the move. An Application submitted more than 10 days after the move may be denied due to untimeliness of the request.

Who approves or disapproves an Application for Continued Enrollment?

If the new residence is inside Northside ISD, the campus principal approves or disapproves the request. A principal may disapprove an Application for Continued Enrollment:

  1. if the student has failed to maintain an acceptable record (excessive absences or tardies, poor conduct), or;
  2. for lack of timeliness in filing the Application for Continued Enrollment (more than 10 days after the move), or;
  3. for falsifying an address or failing to report a change of address, or:
  4. for lack of space in the requested grade level.

Who approves or disapproves the application if our new address is not inside Northside?

If the new residence is outside Northside ISD, continuing enrollment is contingent upon: 1. the campus principal’s recommendation for approval, and: 2. arrangements for payment of tuition through the Office of Pupil Personnel located at 5900 Evers Road (397-8695). Tuition shall be due in advance and may be scheduled in monthly payments or other payment schedules approved by the Superintendent or designee.

What happens if the Application for Continued Enrollment is approved?

If the Application for Continued Enrollment is approved, the student shall be permitted to remain at the campus for the duration of the school year provided that the student maintains a satisfactory record. The campus principal may choose to revoke continued enrollment if the student fails to maintain a satisfactory record.

What happens if the Application for Continued Enrollment is denied?

At the discretion of the campus principal, when an Application for Continued Enrollment is denied, the student may be allowed to complete the current grading period.

How long is the continued enrollment in effect?

Continued enrollment is granted for the remainder of the current school year only. Continued enrollment for the subsequent year shall not be considered except for seniors who will graduate in the school year following the change of residence.

Who is responsible for transportation?

If continued enrollment is approved, transportation shall be the responsibility of the family.
