"Back to School" School

Administrative Procedure

In order for a student who has dropped out of school to re-enter the public school system in Garrett County, the following conditions must be completed to fulfill the "Back to School" School (BSS) requirements:

1. The parent/guardian of the student who wishes to re-enroll must contact the high school in the appropriate attendance district by the end of July, or at the end of
    first semester at a high school with a four period day schedule, to officially enroll the student in the BSS;

2. The parent/guardian must accompany the student for one hour of the first day of BSS for the application/orientation process;

3. The parent/guardian and student must commit to the expectations of the BSS in order to be enrolled in the program;
4. The parent/guardian must attend an exit conference at the end of the last day of the program;
5. The parent/guardian and student must attend a re-enrollment conference to be scheduled with the school's counselor prior to the beginning of the school year or the
    second semester at a school with a four period day schedule.

It should be noted that a student who has reached the age of eighteen and no longer lives at home does not need to involve his/her parent/guardian in this process. The building administrator will have the discretion to waive parent involvement in the program if an extreme hardship in the family occurs.
