SMOKY VALLEY 400 STUDENT ENROLLMENT PROCESS

If you currently have a student in the Smoky Valley USD 403 School district and you feel (or have been advised) to consider a virtual education for your student, you will need to follow a process. Please note: THIS PROCESS APPLIES TO BOTH SVMS AND SVHS TRANSFER STUDENTS!

SMOKY VALLEY VIRTUAL CHARTER SCHOOL TRANSFER POLICY--AS NOTED FROM THE SVHS STUDENT HANDBOOK

A SVMS or SVHS student who is currently enrolled and is interested in transferring to SVVCS will follow the following procedures: 
•Schedule a meeting with the SVMS/SVHS principal/counselor to discuss transferring to the SVVCS and complete a request to transfer application
•If a 9th grade student has not been previously enrolled at the Virtual school, students will not be considered for transfer to SVVCS until the second semester of their 9th grade year. (see below for the second semester request deadline.) 

•When SVMS/SVHS receives the completed application and a meeting with the student and parent/guardian are held, the SVMS/SVHS MTSS team will review the application and make a determination of placement. 
•If a student is determined eligible for transfer by the MTSS team, parents/ guardians and students will meet with the SVVCS Director as part of the enrollment process. 
•If the MTSS team determines that a student is not eligible for transfer, parents/guardians may appeal this decision to the district office by contacting the clerk of the board. A meeting to hear the appeal will be held and the district level team will make a final determination on placement.
