Dual enrollment applies to home school or private school students wishing to participate in their boundary school program(s) only. Students enrolled in any public school (including online public schools) are not eligible for “dual enrollment”.
A “Dual Enrollment Student” is:
- A student who is enrolled simultaneously in either a private school or home school, and a public school: The purpose of this rule is to provide consistent statewide procedures and criteria for a home school and private school student’s participation in a public school course, co-curricular activity, or program (R277-438-2 and Utah Code 53G-6-702-5).
- Not enrolled in any public school including online schools that access public school funding: Charter schools are public schools. A student who is enrolled in a charter school, including the K-12 Utah Virtual Academy Charter School, may not dual enroll in the boundary school. The K-8 or K-12 online schools through Alpine, Davis, Tooele, Provo, Washington and other districts are public schools that get their funding from the WPU (weighted pupil unit). When a student enrolls in one of these online schools, their records are sent to the receiving school upon request. (The online schools, like all public schools, have the responsibility to meet any IEP needs.) A student who is enrolled in these schools may not dual enroll in the boundary school.
- Enrolled in their boundary school for less than half-time (0.499): Students acknowledged for home school by the Board of Education may dual enroll. In order to maintain home school status, their enrollment in public school must be less than half-time. They should be enrolled as part-time in the computer system, pay full fees and follow all public school rules and guidelines.
- Students enrolled in a private school who wish to enroll in up to three (3) periods (less than half- time) in the student’s Jordan School District boundary school are required to show verification of private school enrollment status. They should be enrolled part time in the computer system, pay full fees and follow all public school rules and guidelines.
- Students enrolled in a Jordan School District high school who require a class or classes from another Jordan District high school may be accepted as a courtesy and with the approval of the administrators of both schools. The class requested must not be offered at the high school of their enrollment. The counseling center or registrar should track the attendance and grade from the teacher and report it to the high school of enrollment. Class and/or book fees will be charged, if applicable.
- Students enrolled at Valley High School seeking a 24-credit diploma will not be allowed to dual enroll in a regular high school that requires a 5 or 27 credit diploma. Dual enrollment at a regular high school and the alternative high school is not allowed due to the differences in credit requirements and funding support. (Credit Guidelines Booklet, page 7, Section I.D.5).
- Students taking a technology class in another district must be enrolled in a Jordan District school. The other district will report the grade to the school.
- Students who leave the regular public high school and enter an adult education program shall not be allowed to return to a Jordan School District high school due to the differences in credit requirements and funding support.
