All fees are due at time of enrollment. Enrollment fees can be paid by cash, check or debit/credit card. The Basehor-Linwood School District furnishes textbooks for students. Funds collected from enrollment fees are used for the purchase of textbooks and other educational materials.
 
Birth Certificate: Parents are required by law to present a birth certificate and up-to-date immunization records upon enrolling their student for the first time. Students without updated immunization records will not be allowed to attend school.
 
Proof of Residency: Students must reside at the address on file in our Skyward student information system with their guardian. The term 'reside' refers to when a student lives with his or her parents and commutes daily to and from that residence to school. Only those appointed by the courts to a full personal and estate guardianship are recognized, if both parents are deceased. Acceptable documents for proof of residency in USD 458 are the following:
 
  • Current Kansas DL or ID renewal postcard
  • Current year Kansas vehicle registration
  • Utility bill or equivalent no more than two months old (examples of utilities include electricity, water and gas)

  • Current paycheck stub
 
Part-Time Students: The board allows any child to enroll part-time in the school district to allow the student to attend any courses, programs, or services offered by the school district if the child:

  • is also enrolled in a non-accredited private elementary or secondary school or in any other private, denominational, or parochial school as required by law;
  • requests to enroll part-time in the school district; and
  • meets the age of eligibility requirements for school attendance.
 
District administrators shall make a good faith attempt to accommodate scheduling requests of students enrolling in the school district in these situations but shall not be required to make adjustments to accommodate every such request.

Part-time students, other than those specified previously in this policy may enroll with the administration’s permission if they complete all paperwork in a timely fashion and are in attendance no later than the first day of school. Such part-time students may be admitted only to the extent that staff, facilities, equipment, and supplies are available, and the students follow the district’s student conduct policies and rules. (See BOE Policy JBC)
 
Health Assessment: Any pupil up to the age of nine years who has not previously enrolled in any school in this state, prior to admission to and attendance in school, shall present to the appropriate school board the results of a health assessment, which assessment shall have been conducted within 12 months of school entry by a nurse who has completed the Department of Health and Environment training and certification, by a physician or by a person acting under the direction of a physician as per K.S.A. 72-5214.

As an alternate of the health assessment required: A written statement signed by one parent or guardian that the child is an adherent of a religious denomination whose religious teachings are opposed to such assessment; or a written statement signed by one parent or guardian that such assessment will be scheduled and completed within 90 days after admission to school.

New Non-Resident Student Information
 
Background: The Kansas Legislature passed a bill during the 2022 legislative session, which was signed into law, amending school enrollment statutes to require all school districts in the state to allow open enrollment for nonresident students, if space is available, beginning in the 2024-2025 school year.
 
As part of the new requirement, the USD 458 Board of Education has adopted a new policy for nonresident enrollment that took effect January 1, 2024 after conducting a public hearing, pursuant to K.S.A. 72-3126, on Monday, November 13th, regarding the proposed policy. 
 
The required timeline will be as follows:
 
On or before May 1 of each year - the superintendent shall present the recommendations concerning capacity and student-to-teacher ratios to the board for adoption or modification, and the board shall determine, for each grade level in each school building of the school district for the next succeeding school year, the following:
  • Capacity based on the study conducted by the superintendent or the superintendent’s
    designee;
  • the number of students expected to attend school in the school district; and
  • the number of open seats available to nonresidents at each grade, building, or program level.
 
On or before June 1 of each year - the district shall publish the number of open seats available to
nonresident students in each grade level for each school building of the district for the next succeeding
school year on the school district's website. Applications will be made available on this ENROLLMENT page on our website.

From June 1 through June 30 - district administration shall accept applications from nonresident
students.
  • If the number of applications for a grade level in a school building is less than the number of
    available seats for that grade level in the school building, the nonresident students shall be accepted for
    enrollment and attendance at the school district, except as provided below for nonresident students
    regarding continued enrollment.
  • If the number of applications for a grade level in a school building is greater than the number of
    available seats for the grade level in the school building, district administration shall randomly select
    nonresident students using a confidential lottery process. This process shall be completed on or before
    July 15 of each year and students will be notified accordingly.
