Part-Time Students

Children excused from school attendance by the Superintendent and children enrolled in non-public schools are not the direct educational responsibility of the District. However, the Mason City Schools Board of Education believes certain public school programs should be available to all community K-12 students if they choose to participate. Therefore, the Board allows part-time enrollment for children educated in nonpublic schools or at home in accordance with ORC §§ 3301-34-01 – 3301-34-06. 

Part-time Enrollment Procedures 
The parent/guardian of the child requesting part-time enrollment must be a legal resident of the District, residing in the attendance zone of the school where part time enrollment is requested or completing the requirements for requesting an alternate school of choice. If legal residence is not maintained, enrollment shall be terminated pursuant to ORC § 3313.64.

A maximum of two courses constitutes part-time enrollment. Consideration for part-time enrollment is subject to the building capacity and class or program size and limitations. The final decision regarding admission and location of part-time enrolled students rests with the Superintendent or Designee.  A part-time student may enroll once each school year.  The deadline for part-time enrollment is July 30th.  The District will inform part-time students of their enrollment eligibility by August 15th. An exception to the part-time enrollment deadline may be made for new residents.

The child’s parent/guardian must complete the enrollment process and forms required by the District and/or the building for enrollment of all children. The parent/guardian shall provide written notice to withdraw a child from part-time enrollment. An exit interview with the parent/guardian may be requested upon withdrawal.
 
Grades K-8
Part-time enrollment is permitted in two special subject areas:  art, music, physical education, health, technology, science lab (k-6), and/or foreign language. Time for special area subjects may vary.  Parents must provide transportation accordingly.
 
Grades 9-12
Part-time enrollment is permitted in two courses per trimester. For courses requiring a prerequisite (e.g., Anatomy and Physiology or Calculus), part-time enrolling students must provide the most recent assessment report pertinent to the area in which enrollment is sought. Parents/guardians of children seeking part-time enrollment are responsible for prerequisite study and/or experiences. Time for core subjects may vary.  Parents must provide transportation accordingly.
 
School Procedures
Grade level placement is at the discretion of the building principal and shall be based on: age of the child; recent assessment report, if provided; results of standardized achievement tests, if provided, compared to District students of similar age; interviews with the child or parent/guardian; and/or other evaluative methods used with the consent of the parent/guardian to determine preparation and prerequisites for the courses or grade level requested.

The content of instruction provided in the District is determined by District curricula and courses of study approved by the Board and available for review at the Board office.

Club or Enrichment Program Procedures
The Mason City Schools’ Board of Education allows participation in school club and after school enrichment program activities for children educated in nonpublic schools or at home.  A club is any extracurricular or “club” where academic eligibility and tryouts are not required.

Grades K-6
Part-time enrollment is permitted in any After-School Enrichment Program subject to the activity capacity and club or program size and limitations. A part-time student will enroll in club and/or after-school enrichment program activities within the deadlines set by each club or after-school enrichment program.
