Admission From Private or Home SchoolsThe following policy will be followed before a student from a private or home school will be allowed to enroll in Switzerland County High School:
Credits from private or home schools will be accepted at face value if the private school is commissioned by the Commission on General Education of the State of Indiana.
Credits from non-accredited private or home schools will not be accepted at face value. The Superintendent may require a battery of tests to determine grade placement, or he shall require evidence of credit equivalency with the approval of the Board of School Trustees. The evidence of equivalency may include an evaluation of teachers’ licenses, a course of study from the private or home school, and results of nationally normal standardized achievement test.
The final decision regarding matters of student grade placement will be the responsibility of the public school officials and Board of School
When a child enters Switzerland County Schools for the first time or any subsequent time at any level, his/her parents or guardians must show that the child has been immunized by filing a physicians statement that includes a schedule of the immunizations, or file a parental objection to immunization based on religious grounds. No child shall be permitted to attend school beyond the first date of his/her enrollment without furnishing a written statement of immunization unless:
- The school gives the parent/guardian a waiver not to exceed twenty (20) days.
- The local health department or a physician determines the student’s immunization schedule has been delayed due to extreme circumstances and the required immunizations will not be completed before the students first day of school. In this case the parent/ guardian shall furnish a written statement and a time schedule approved by a physician or the local health department for the completion of the immunizations.
