If documentation is not provided, a letter will be sent to notify the parent, guardian, or surrogate that unless the documentation is provided within ten (10) days, the local law enforcement agency will be notified.

Nothing contained in this policy shall authorize HPA to disclose to any person a student’s educational record without prior parental consent unless HPA makes a determination that disclosure of such records is necessary to protect the health and safety of the student.

Arizona law allows returning students and siblings of attending students to be given enrollment preference. Should classrooms reach capacity during the open enrollment period, a lottery process will be implemented to ascertain the order of admissions and waiting lists.

New Students and Transferees

Upon enrollment, new students will normally be placed in the grade level indicated on the report card. However, HPA reserves the right to place incoming students in higher or lower grades based on evaluations, which may include test scores and/or performance in the classroom. Pre-registration proficiency testing may be administered at a pre-arranged time. A committee made up of the school principal, future teacher, present teacher, SPED coordinator, and Curriculum Coordinator will decide on the student’s placement.

 

Academic credit for placement in the common school subjects and grades shall be based upon teacher recommendations and previous grade level assignments subject to the determination that the student can meet the standards adopted by the State Board of Education for the grade level assignment.

 

HPA has the authority to limit admissions based on age group or grade level availability, but HPA will not limit admission based on ethnicity, national origin, gender, income level, disabling condition, proficiency in English, or athletic ability.
