TRANSFER OF PUPILS
33-1409. MEASURING AND REPORTING CAPACITY. (1) Every school district must determine maximum enrollment for each grade-level. The district will use the maximum enrollment to determine space available for transfer applications. For secondary grades, a district may use core classroom size per grade level as the standard to determine maximum enrollment.
(2) Not less than four (4) times during the school year, every school district shall publicly post on its website the space available at each grade-level and at each school. Space available shall be determined by comparing the maximum enrollment to the number of pupils actually enrolled. A school district that does not meet the minimum sample size necessary to prevent unlawful release of personally identifiable student data established pursuant to subsection (5) of this section is not subject to the publication requirements pursuant to this subsection.
(3) Not less than four (4) times during the school year, every school district shall report to the state reporting system the space available at each grade-level, school, and in each program, the number of transfer applications, the number of accepted transferred pupils, and the number of denied applications.
(4) By September 1 each year, the state board of education shall collect, analyze, and publish to its website the capacity and transfer data from each school district from the previous year. The report shall include the number of participants, the number of denied applications, and other relevant information. The state board of education shall also report this information to the legislature no later than February 1 of each year.
(5) The state board of education shall not publish or release data of a school district if the number of students who applied for a transfer is less than the minimum sample size necessary for prevention of the unlawful release of personally identifiable student data. The state board of education shall establish the minimum number of students necessary to meet the requirements of this subsection.
