As you will read in our Board of Education Policy (find it here), only non-residents who have been grandfathered in (at least sophomore year in high school), who are District staff (and bus driver) children, and have extenuating circumstances, are allowed to attend schools in our District to the extent that staff, facilities, equipment and supplies are available.
The majority of a District's state funding comes from enrollment. We currently receive $4,006 for every full-time student enrolled by September 20th. In addition, all non-resident students are required to pay enrollment fees according to our District fee schedule.
Overall, our District enrollment is around 2,443 students, and we have 85 documented non-resident students. 35 of these students are children of our staff members. Overall, only 13 non-resident students attend BLHS.
We believe attendance in our District is highly desirable, and there are times we find people who have not followed the proper procedure and protocol for admittance. We find and deal with those situations on an individual basis.
If you would like to discuss further, please feel free to contact our Superintendent David Howard or by calling the District Office at 913.724.1396.
