Information regarding waivers:

  • Approved in-district waivers are current until the next level of schooling (e.g. elementary to middle school; middle school to high school). You will need to submit a new waiver if you are transitioning from K to 1st grade; 5th to 6th grade or 8th to 9th grade and do not want to attend your home school.
  • Kindergarten waivers are for one year only. 
  • Out of district students must submit a new waiver every year. 
  • Enrollment projections dictate staffing and scheduling and your waiver request will remain pending until capacity issues have been addressed.
  • Middle School and High School Waivers: You will need to register at your home school; unless you have an approved waiver. 
  • EAP/AAP program waivers will be reviewed July-August
