Admission of Exchange Students 

The district will accept exchange students from other nations on a J-1 Visa who reside within the district as participants in an exchange program officially recognized by the Board. Exchange students on a J-1 Visa are not required to pay tuition.

Privately sponsored exchange students on an F-1 Visa may be enrolled if an adult resident of the district has been given temporary guardianship and the student lives in the home of that guardian. Exchange students on an F-1 Visa are required to pay tuition at the established district rate. F-1 student admission is limited to secondary schools and attendance may not exceed 12 months.

Exchange students must comply with immunization requirements set forth in state law. Once admitted, exchange students become subject to all district policies and regulations governing students.
