At the May 19, 2021 Board Meeting, the Caston School Board of Trustees approved the following for Out-Of-District Enrollment:
Caston will continue to accept students living outside the Caston School Corporation’s district boundaries for free enrollment in our school corporation. Once a student living out-of-district is admitted to Caston, he or she may continue attending Caston so long as the student upholds the terms of the transfer agreement.
Caston may provide transportation for out-of-district students; however, is under no obligation to provide transportation. Out-of-district students able to transport themselves to a regular bus stop established by Caston may utilize a Caston bus for transportation to and from school so long as there is space to accommodate the student.
The deadline established for accepting students residing out-of-district will be September 15, 2021. Students requesting enrollment beyond this date will be considered for late enrollment if space is available after giving consideration to the reason for requesting late enrollment. There is no obligation to accept an out-of-district student, regardless of the reason, beyond the published deadline.
We will accept up to 15 students per grade level who have not previously enrolled at Caston and reside outside the district. If all sections at a specific grade level are full, and accepting one or more out-of-district students would create the need for additional staff, we reserve the right to deny enrollment based upon budgetary constraints.
Per Indiana law, the school may deny enrollment at Caston to a student residing outside our district due to poor attendance or a prior severe disciplinary record documented by another school.
Caston will not deny enrollment based upon disability unless we cannot provide for the needs of the student within the programs available at Caston.
