Only students who are residents of a member School District may attend the Technology Center of DuPage, except as otherwise provided below or in State law. A student’s residence is the same as the person who has legal custody of the student. The member School Districts are responsible for verifying student residency.
A student whose family moves out of a member School District during the school year will be permitted to attend the Technology Center of DuPage for the remainder of the year.
When a student’s change of residence is due to the military service obligation of the student’s legal custodian, the student’s residence is deemed to be unchanged for the duration of the custodian’s military service obligation if the student’s custodian made a written request. The Technology Center, however, is not responsible for the student’s transportation to or from school.
If, at the time of enrollment, a dependent child of military personnel is housed in temporary housing located outside of the member Districts, but will be living within the boundaries of a member District within 60 days after the time of initial enrollment, the child is allowed to enroll, subject to the requirements of State law.
Requests for Nonresident Student Admission
Students who are not residents of a member School District shall not be permitted to attend the Technology Center of DuPage. Non-member districts may petition the Board for admission of students who are residents of the non-member district. Decisions on the admission of students from non-member districts shall be at the sole discretion of the Board. However, any homeless child shall be immediately admitted, even if the child or child’s parent/guardian is unable to produce records normally required to establish residency in a member School District. DAOES policy 6:140, Education of Homeless Children, and its implementing administrative procedure, govern the enrollment of homeless children.
