Subject: Enrollment of Non-Resident Students

Students whose parents do not reside in Utah must meet the registration requirements outlined below.

Registration requirements for students whose parents are not residents of the North Sanpete School District or of the State of Utah are as follows:

  1. All new students whose parents do not reside in North Sanpete School District must have a guardian that possesses an order establishing a Court Appointed Guardianship.
  2. The student's parent(s) or guardian(s) must complete the Application for Admission and submit it to the Student Services Coordinator.
  3. A conference with the student and his/her parents or the student and his/her substitute parents will be held with the District Pupil Services Coordinator to discuss the circumstances of the student and to review the Court-ordered Guardianship.
  4. The Student Services Coordinator will discuss the student's application and information from the previous school with the receiving principal before specific program agreements are made between the student and the school.
  5. The Student Services Coordinator will report the findings to the student and his/her parent(s) and/or Court-ordered Guardian.
  6. The same procedures apply to students who are in custody of the state; these students must enter with a Youth in Custody Intake Information Sheet.


A court appointed guardianship is a legal transfer of authority from parent(s) to guardian(s). While parent(s) may grant a power of attorney without involving any governmental entity, guardianship may only be awarded by a court or other authorized government body. So far as duration is concerned, guardianship remains in force until terminated as provided by law in Section 75-5-210, UCA 1995.

I understand that all transfer requests are contingent on early enrollment school capacity (“maximum capacity”) or late enrollment school capacity (“adjusted capacity”), special program limitations, staff availability, and/or circumstances under 53A-2-207(4)(c). If this request is granted, I agree that my child must remain at the requested school through the end of the requested school year. I understand that I, as parent or guardian, am responsible for transportation of my student to and from school. I understand that a student’s acceptance into a school or school district does not establish UHSAA (student athletic or activity) eligibility.
