Corbett School District No. 39
Corbett Charter School Non-resident Admission Procedure
Public charter schools are voluntary schools of choice to which students apply for enrollment. All students who reside within Corbett School District boundaries are guaranteed admission and do not need to apply to attend. Students who live outside the Corbett School District boundaries are eligible for enrollment if space is available. Corbett Charter School may not limit enrollment based on race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, disability, the terms of an individualized education program, income level, proficiency in the English language, or athletic ability.
Corbett Charter School has limited the capacity and may limit their numbers to a specific number of grades, class size, and/or overall enrollment. All students who reside within current school district boundaries are guaranteed admission.
- During the current school year, students who do not attend the school district for more than ten consecutive days will be considered unenrolled and forfeit their enrollment.
- During the current school year, students who enroll in a different school district will be considered unenrolled and forfeit their enrollment.
- Students who live outside of the Corbett School District boundaries and are no longer enrolled must reapply for enrollment.
Priority will be given to:
- Students who have siblings enrolled in the Corbett Charter School.
- Students who have been enrolled in the district pre-kindergarten program in the prior school year.
- Students enrolled/attending in Corbett Charter School on the last day of the school year are automatically enrolled for the following school year.
