ASBCS Enrollment Guidance

Charter schools are required to employ an impartial, equitable, and unbiased process for enrolling students. They must be aware of, and in compliance with, all statutes, rules, and policies that govern enrollment practices. Charter schools are required to collect certain documents and information, and conversely, to avoid asking questions or requiring documents that create violations of statute, rule, and/or policy. They should avoid practices that create the perception of a possible violation or barrier to enrollment.

This enrollment guidance is provided to assist charter schools in reviewing their enrollment policies, packets and related documents, including parent and student handbooks, to ensure that the enrollment process does not violate the rights of students.

This guidance should not be considered legal advice. Charter schools should consult their own legal counsel for further information and advice.
