BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Education of North Bend Central Public Schools that Board Policy 3120 calls for the closing to option enrollment students of any program, class, grade level, or school building when the Board has determined that capacity has been reached. "An option enrollment application shall be rejected in the event the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or school building or the availability of appropriate special education programs operated by the school district would be exceeded by acceptance of the application, and an option enrollment application shall be rejected in the event the application is for enrollment in a program, class, grade level, or school building which has been declared unavailable to option students due to lack of capacity as determined by the annual capacity resolution adopted by the Board of Education."
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Superintendent is hereby authorized to reject option enrollment applications for the 2017-18 school year if acceptance of the application would result in an enrollment of more than 44 students total in any grade, Kindergarten through Grade 5, more than 48 students in any grade, Grades 6 and 7, or more than 62 students in grades 8-11. Grades K – 5 special education enrollment capacity at the elementary is 30. The Level III special education program remains closed in 2017-18 as well. Should capacity be reached and an application denied, the superintendent may appeal to the Board of Education to reconsider capacity limits.
