    During the Board of Education’s meeting held on Dec. 7, 2023, the Board adopted a policy related to open enrollment. Read new policy JBCC that applies to non-resident students. The policy’s adoption was required by Kansas House Bill 2567, which is a Kansas law that applies to all public schools in the state and takes effect beginning with the 2024-25 school year. Prior to adopting policy JBCC the Board of Education held a public hearing on Nov. 2, 2023. HB 2567 requires all districts to allow non-resident students, who reside in Kansas, to enroll in and attend any school if the district has the capacity.
