49 the parent's or guardian's child in a public school in
50 another district by the deadline of January 1 of the

Page 2

1 previous year, and one of the criteria defined in

3 deadline or if the request is to enroll a child in
4 kindergarten in a public school in another district,
5 the parent or guardian shall be permitted to enroll
6 the child in the other district in the same manner as
7 if the deadline had been met.
8 The board of directors of a school district may
9 adopt a policy granting the superintendent of the
10 district authority to approve open enrollment
11 applications that are timely filed. However, the
12 board of directors shall not grant the superintendent
13 authority to deny open enrollment applications, except

28 in the receiving district for the following school
29 year unless the receiving district does not have

30 classroom space for the pupil. If the request is
31 granted, the board shall transmit a copy of the form
32 to the parent or guardian and the school district of
33 residence within five days after board action, but not
34 later than March 1 of the preceding school year. The
35 parent or guardian may withdraw the request at any
36 time prior to the start of the school year. A denial
37 of a request by the board of a receiving district is
38 not subject to appeal.
39 Sec. . Section 282.18, subsection 3, unnumbered
40 paragraph 2, Code 2001, is amended to read as follows:
41 A parent or guardian, whose request has been denied

46 decision. A decision of the board to uphold the
47 denial of the request is subject to appeal under
48 section 290.1 to the district court in the county in
49 which the primary business office of the district is
50 located.

Page 3

1 Sec. . Section 282.18, subsections 4 and 5,
2 Code 2001, are amended by striking the subsections and
3 inserting in lieu thereof the following:
4 4. a. After January 1 of the preceding school
5 year and until the third Friday in September of that
6 calendar year, the parent or guardian shall send
7 notification to the district of residence and the
8 receiving district, on forms prescribed by the
9 department of education, that good cause, as defined
10 in paragraph "b", exists for failure to meet the
11 January 1 deadline. The board of the receiving
12 district shall take action to approve the request if
13 good cause exists. If the request is granted, the
14 board shall transmit a copy of the form to the parent
15 or guardian and the school district of residence
16 within five days after board action. A denial of a
17 request by the board of a receiving district is not
18 subject to appeal.
19 b. For purposes of this section, "good cause"
20 means a change in a child's residence due to a change
21 in family residence, a change in the state in which
22 the family residence is located, a change in a child's
23 parents' marital status, a guardianship or custody
24 proceeding, placement in foster care, adoption,
25 participation in a foreign exchange program, or
26 participation in a substance abuse or mental health
27 treatment program, a change in the status of a child's
28 resident district such as removal of accreditation by

29 the state board, surrender of accreditation, or
30 permanent closure of a nonpublic school, the failure
31 of negotiations for a whole-grade sharing,
32 reorganization, dissolution agreement or the rejection
33 of a current whole-grade sharing agreement, or
34 reorganization plan. If the good cause relates to a
35 change in status of a child's school district of
36 residence, however, action by a parent or guardian
37 must be taken to file the notification within forty-
38 five days of the last board action or within thirty
39 days of the certification of the election, whichever
40 is applicable to the circumstances.
41 c. If a resident district believes that a
42 receiving district is unreasonable in approving
43 applications submitted in accordance with this
44 subsection, the resident district may request that the
45 department review and take appropriate action.
46 5. Open enrollment applications filed after
47 January 1 of the preceding school year that do not
48 qualify for good cause as provided in subsection 4
49 shall be subject to the approval of the board of the
50 resident district and the board of the receiving

Page 4

1 district. The parent or guardian shall send
2 notification to the district of residence and the
3 receiving district that the parent or guardian seeks
4 to enroll the parent's or guardian's child in the
5 receiving district. A decision of either board to
6 deny an application filed under this subsection
7 involving repeated acts of harassment of the student
8 or serious health condition of the student that the
9 resident district cannot adequately address is subject
10 to appeal under section 290.1. The state board shall
11 exercise broad discretion to achieve just and
12 equitable results that are in the best interest of the
13 affected child or children.
14 Sec. . Section 282.18, subsection 6, Code 2001,
15 is amended to read as follows:
16 6. A request under this section is for a period of
17 not less than one year. If the request is for more
18 than one year and the parent or guardian desires to
19 have the pupil enroll in a different district, the
20 parent or guardian may petition the current receiving
21 district by January 1 of the previous school year for
22 permission to enroll the pupil in a different district
23 for a period of not less than one year. Upon receipt
24 of such a request, the current receiving district
25 board may act on the request to transfer to the other
26 school district at the next regularly scheduled board
27 meeting after the receipt of the request. The new

28 receiving district shall enroll the pupil in a school
29 in the district unless there is insufficient classroom
30 space in the district or unless enrollment of the
31 pupil would adversely affect the court-ordered or
32 voluntary desegregation plan of the district. A
33 denial of a request to change district enrollment
34 within the approved period is not subject to appeal
35 under section 290.1. However, a pupil who has been in
36 attendance in another district under this section may
37 return to the district of residence and enroll at any
38 time, once the parent or guardian has notified the
39 district of residence and the receiving district in
40 writing of the decision to enroll the pupil in the
41 district of residence.
42 Sec. . Section 282.18, subsection 14, Code
43 2001, is amended to read as follows:
44 14. If a pupil, for whom a request to transfer has
45 been filed with a district, has been suspended or
46 expelled in the district, the pupil shall not be
47 permitted to transfer until the pupil has been
48 reinstated in the sending district. Once the pupil
49 has been reinstated, however, the pupil shall be
50 permitted to transfer in the same manner as if the

Page 5

1 pupil had not been suspended or expelled by the
2 sending district. If a pupil, for whom a request to
3 transfer has been filed with a district, is expelled
4 in the district, the pupil shall be permitted to
5 transfer to a receiving district under this section if
6 the pupil applies for and is reinstated in the sending
7 district. However, if the pupil applies for
8 reinstatement but is not reinstated in the sending
9 district, the receiving district may deny the request
10 to transfer. The parent or guardian of the pupil
11 shall be permitted to appeal the decision of the
12 receiving district to the director of the department
13 of education. If the director rules in favor of
14 permitting the transfer, the pupil shall be permitted
15 to transfer, but the transfer shall be conditioned
16 upon the expiration of the expulsion period without
17 the pupil incurring a new violation is not subject to
18 appeal.
19 Sec. . Section 282.18, subsection 16, Code
20 2001, is amended by striking the subsection and
21 inserting in lieu thereof the following:

16 order or plan, unless the transfer is requested by a

17 pupil whose sibling is already participating in open
