The open enrollment process in school districts will remain the same next year after the defeat of a bill placing a specific prohibition on the option.
- In the preceding school year, was a resident student and enrolled in the school district;
- In the preceding school year, was determined to have a level four disability or a level five disability with at least one disability being a level four disability;
- Does not require an assignment to an out of district special education residential or tuition day program; and
- Does not require transportation as a related service under the terms of the student’s individualized education program.
Rep. Jon Hansen, the bill’s prime sponsor, said it would “provide some assurance” to parents and students and added that “schools want the ability to deny” open enrollment in certain instances, but they could only do so for capacity issues, not “financial reasons.”
Rep. Ray Ring countered “the capacity question is always a financial question.”
