Any person who knowingly or willfully presents to the district any false information regarding the residency of a student for the purpose of enrolling that student to attend school in the district, or who knowingly enrolls a student who is not a resident of the district, shall be guilty of a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days incarceration in the St. Clair Jail ILCS 5/5-8-3 and/or a fine up to $1500.00 730 ILCS 5/5-9-1. In addition any nonresident student will be charged tuition for each day of enrollment in accordance with Section 10-20.12a, of the Illinois School Code.
Step 3: Physical Exam and Immunization Records
All incoming freshmen must have their physical exam and immunization records on file by the first day of school. Illinois law requires that new students to the district are to have a physical examination and immunization record on file within 30 days after enrollment.
Step 4: Copies of School Records
While we will send for the official copy of a student’s records after he/she enrolls, it is helpful for students to have copies of their records when they select courses during the registration conferences. Each special education student should have a copy of his/her I.E.P.
Step 5: ISBE Student Transfer Form
This form will be required at the time of registration if the student is transferring from an Illinois public school.
At registration each student will complete the following items:
- District 201 Enrollment Information Form and Card
- Selection of Courses: A guidance counselor will assist in the process.
Information and materials provided to new students when they register:
- Curriculum Guide
- Locker Assignment
- Bus Information
- Lunch Information
- I. D. Card
- A Schedule of Classes
- Student Discipline Policy
- Student/Parent Handbook
In the event that the district denies enrollment, the parent/legal guardian may appeal the decision to the Principal. If the parent/legal guardian is not satisfied with the Principal’s decision, he/she may appeal to the Assistant Superintendent or Superintendent’s decision, he/she may appeal at the next regularly scheduled board meeting. While this question is being decided the student may not enroll in the school. As a part of the investigation process, the district may require the parent/legal guardian of the student to produce additional proofs of legal residence. If the decision by the Board of Education is that the student does not reside within the district, admission is denied.
