Resolution of The Board Relating to Open Enrollment for the 2023-24 School Year:
Board Policy 501.13 relates to Open Enrollment and states in part as follows:
Open enrollment requests into the school district will not be approved if insufficient classroom space exists. Insufficient classroom space exists when conditions adversely affect the implementation of the educational philosophy and program of the Board. For purposes of this policy, the phrase “insufficient classroom space” shall be determined on a case-by-case basis, a grade level basis and/or a school building basis. “Insufficient classroom space” shall be based on one or more of the following factors: nature of the educational program, grade level, available instructional staff, instructional method, physical space, pupil-teacher ratio, equipment and materials, facilities either being planned or under construction, facilities planned to be closed, finances available, sharing agreement in force or planned, bargaining agreement in force, law or rules governing special education class size, or board-adopted district educational goals and objectives. The Board may also consider other factors deemed relevant by the Board.
Presently, based on a review of the factors described in the policy above, it has been determined that due to insufficient classroom space factors open enrollment will be closed in grades 7-12 and closed for special education students in grades K-12 for the 2023-24 school year subject to the exceptions provided for in policy 501.13. The district reserves the right to close open enrollment in grades K-6 at any time the total enrollment of the district at any grade level meets any of the “insufficient classroom space” factors.
- The Board may consider open enrollment requests of ADM school employees.
- The Board may consider, on a case-by-case basis, open enrollment requests of residents who move out of the district and request to open enroll back to ADM immediately.
