501.60 Non-Resident Students

Students who are eligible to attend an Iowa public school but who are not legal residents of this District may be admitted to school at the discretion of the Superintendent/designee, upon application and payment of tuition if ineligible for open enrollment. The tuition rate shall be the current per pupil cost of the District as computed by the Board Secretary and as authorized by the Iowa Department of Education.

Resident students whose families move from the District and who wish to continue their education in the District, may be permitted to attend without payment of tuition. Residents who are moving from the District and wish to have their student(s) continue attending in the District should refer to policies 503.31 Approval of Open Enrollment Transfers In and 501.32 Open Enrollment Transfers.

Students in grades eleven or twelve who are no longer residents of the District but were residents in the preceding school year may continue to attend school without payment of tuition until they graduate. These students not of legal age must have a place of residence and person responsible identified for purposes of administration (notarized documentation may be required).

Non-resident students who are eligible to attend an Iowa public school and who have positive evidence they will become legal residents of the District by enrollment certification date of the current school year may be allowed to attend without payment of tuition.

Any student who is of legal age may attend the Ankeny Community Schools if residency within the District is established by that student.

Under certain conditions, students may be able to transfer between districts. These situations are determined individually by the Iowa Department of Education.
