Policy No. 3114

Part-time students are permitted to enroll and receive ancillary services, on a space availability basis, provided that such students are otherwise eligible for full-time enrollment in the school district, that such courses or services are not available in the student's private school or an approved extension thereof, and that there is capacity in school to accommodate the student. The part-time status also includes any student, not enrolled in a private school, who is receiving home-based instruction and taking courses at or receiving ancillary services from the district or both, or any student involved in an approved work training program.

Home-based instruction shall consist of instructional and related educational activities, including the basic skills of occupational education, science, mathematics, language, social studies, history, health, reading, writing, spelling, and the development of an appreciation of art and music. Such instruction shall be equivalent, as liberally construed, to the total annual program hours per grade level as established for public schools.

A student may be enrolled in an off-campus instruction program provided that such experiences have been approved by the superintendent or designee.

The superintendent is authorized to develop and implement the necessary regulations for the administration of this policy.
