                                 ENROLLMENT INFORMATION
TUITION-FREE ATTENDANCE AT EVSC SCHOOLS
Through recent state legislation, students in Indiana may now attend schools that are not in their county
of legal residence, tuition free. For more information and an application for transfer to a school within the
Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation, from outside Vanderburgh County, please call the Center for
Family, School, and Community Partnerships at 435-8463. Parents within Vanderburgh County, that
have specific medical, Choice, adjustment and working-parent transfer situations, who would like to
transfer from their child’s home school to another school within the EVSC, should also call the Center for
Family, School, and Community Partnerships.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE PROGRAM STUDENTS AND ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS
High school principals approve enrollment of foreign exchange program students. Students enrolling
without a birth certificate issued in the United States and/or living with parents/guardians in your district will be
permitted to enroll. Passport information can be accepted as legal verification. For questions about enrolling in
English as a Second Language (ESL) programs, contact Sandra Madriaga, director of English Language
Learners and High Ability Programs, at 435-8424.

IMMUNIZATIONS
Immunizations are required by Indiana State Law. When children enroll in EVSC schools for the first time or
any subsequent time and at any level, the parent/guardian must show written proof of immunizations or have
on file a current religious or medical exemption. The immunization waiver for a medical exemption requires a
written diagnosis by a physician stating that a student has a medical condition that precludes receiving certain
vaccines. A waiver of immunization because of religious reason requires a letter from the parent/guardian. Both
waivers must be updated yearly. A child may not be permitted to attend school beyond the first day of
school without furnishing written proof of immunizations, or a request for a waiver. See Minimum
Immunizations for School Entry. For further information, please call the Center for Family, School and
Community Partnerships - Office of Health Services and Wellness at 435-8279.

To obtain the current immunization requirements, see the next page. For more information, contact the
Center for Family, School, and Community Partnerships - Office of Health Services and Wellness at 435-8279.

encouraged to call prior to the first week of school, to get their questions answered. The office is open year

Paying for your child’s meals on-line is also a payment option. If desired, you may use VISA or
Mastercard to make payments into the student’s meal account. A $2.50 fee per transaction will be
charged for those making on-line deposits to an account. To access this service, go to
www.EZSchoolPay.com. You will need your child’s seven digit EVSC Student ID number. This number
can be found on the pre-printed free and reduced price meal application that every student receives or on
the opening page of EdEase Parent Access. Even if you do not use EZ School Pay to make on-line
payments, the service allows you to check your child’s meal account history and balance at no charge.

Families may be eligible for free or reduced price meals. Some EVSC students will be pre-approved for
free meals and other benefits and will be notified. Pre-printed family applications, for free and/or reduced
price meals and other benefits, will be distributed to all other students. A household having more than
one child enrolled in EVSC may receive multiple applications. However, just one of these applications
needs to be completed and returned with one child to his/her school office. Students approved for free or
reduced price meals are eligible to receive free text books and other benefits.

If your child has special dietary needs that require a menu change, a Diet Prescription for Meals at School
form may be obtained from the cafeteria manager or school nurse. The form must be signed by a
physician or recognized medical authority and returned to the cafeteria. In most instances, we are able to
make the necessary adjustments.
                           SCHOOL UNIFORM DRESS CODES

According to the EVSC School Rules, the EVSC Dress Code for ALL EVSC schools follows the Indiana

Appropriate dress and personal grooming are required of each student as a vital part of
maintaining the educational environment. Modes of grooming or styles of attire which detract
from a good teaching/learning situation are not acceptable. It is required that coats and
backpacks are secured in lockers upon arrival to school and remain there until the end of the
school day. Extremes shall be avoided in all areas of dress and grooming including body
piercing. (Body piercing, except for ears, is prohibited in elementary and middle schools.) All
decisions about appropriate dress and grooming will be made by the schools’ administrators.

the classroom and could face further disciplinary action.

provisions for continual changing of fads in dress/accessories, the school administration reserves the
right to decide what is acceptable and appropriate.

             All clothing must be properly fitting.
             No head gear or accessories are allowed to be worn in the building.

             All coats, jackets, raincoats, and backpacks should be labeled with the student’s name for
             easy identification.
             It is the parent’s responsibility to see all clothing meets the Plaza Park dress code
             requirements.

Pants: Students are not required to wear a particular style of pant, shoe, etc. The pants you choose for

                              WEATHER RELATED SCHOOL CLOSINGS


All schools in the EVSC will be open on all regularly scheduled days unless closed by the EVSC
Superintendent because of an emergency situation or inclement weather that makes driving or walking
conditions unsafe. The school corporation will attempt to have schools open each day that road and weather
conditions are considered safe for students.

On days of inclement weather when roads are considered to be unsafe for school bus transportation, the
decision to close school is made by the Superintendent usually prior to 5:45 a.m. Decisions regarding schools
closing are reached by school officials after traveling area roads between 3-5 a.m. In addition, information is
received from the National Weather Service, Indiana State Police, Evansville Police Department, Vanderburgh
County Sheriff, Indiana State and Vanderburgh County Highway Departments; as well as consultations with
surrounding school districts.

When the decision is made to close, or if it is decided a delay of opening is in order, notification will be sent to
all families and staff through the EVSC’s Family Notification system, Connect-ED. This Outreach call will go to
the primary method of communication listed by families and employees. It is important that this information is
kept up-to-date. All local radio and television stations will also be notified at the time the decision is made. The
news media generally begin making the announcement immediately and at frequent intervals, thereafter.

The following announcements may be made:

         All schools are closed.

         Schools will be open, but starting time may be delayed up to two hours.

         Schools will be open as usual, but bus transportation is provided ONLY on alternate routes. Alternate
         routes are those identified by the city and county officials as having first priority for clearing.

         On rare occasions, weather conditions may worsen sufficiently during the day as to require an early
         dismissal of students. Early dismissal may be necessary in order to get students home before
         inclement conditions make transportation hazardous. In order to prepare for this, parents should
         instruct children what to do should this occur.

         In some instances, schools will hold students until the threat of severe weather has passed before
         releasing them to parents or for the bus trip home. If this occurs, students WILL NOT be released to
         parents or be allowed to leave the school after they have been taken to their ―safe‖ locations within the
         buildings, until an all-clear is given. Student and staff safety is the EVSC’S first and foremost concern.


Weather conditions are not always the same throughout the 241 square miles of Vanderburgh County; thus, it
may be possible for most of our schools to remain open while some must be closed due to the terrain and
roads in the immediate vicinity. A map of road conditions throughout the county will be posted at
www.evscschools.com

EACH PARENT HAS THE FINAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CARE OF THEIR CHILD; THEREFORE, ON
DAYS WHEN THE SCHOOL IS OPEN AND THE PARENT OR GUARDIAN FEELS THAT TRAVEL IS NOT
SAFE, THE PARENT MAY CHOOSE TO KEEP THE STUDENT HOME. When this decision is made, the
parent/guardian should send a note to school and the absence will be considered excused and time will be
allowed for make-up work to be completed. The State of Indiana requires that all schools be open a minimum
of 180 days.

                                   DISTRIBUTION OF NETBOOK COMPUTERS
The EVSC is beginning its second year of the one-to-one laptop initiative, providing a netbook to all high school
students for use in classes and at home this school year. Through the Indiana Department of Education, laptop
computers are considered as textbooks (a learning tool), and the EVSC will treat the netbooks in the same
manner. The process and protocols that are already in place for textbooks will also be utilized for netbooks. This
includes bar-coding, inventory, distribution, and repair/replacement. Once the textbooks and netbooks are in the
student’s possession, they are responsible for the care of both.
Netbooks will be distributed to high school students at Bosse, Central, Harrison, North, Reitz, and the Academy
for Innovative Studies. Netbooks will also be used in the Equity Schools of Delaware Elementary, Howard Roosa
Elementary and McGary Middle School. Eighth graders at McGary will also be allowed to take netbooks home for
use there. High school netbook rental for the school year is $70 ($35 per semester). McGary eighth graders will
also pay $70 per year for netbook rental. For students who qualify for free or reduced lunches, the netbook will
be rented to the student at no charge.

Students will be responsible for the care of the netbook to ensure that it is not damaged. If damage or other
problems with the netbook occur, the student should report the problem to the school building support technician
who will assess the damage and initiate a repair ticket. In the event of damage due to accidental or negligent
behavior, the student and parent will receive an invoice for the repair costs.

All parents are encouraged to purchase optional insurance. Insurance options may be available through an
individual homeowner policy or other insurance companies. One option available for students, faculty and staff, is
Student Insurance Partners. This company provides laptop/tablet insurance which covers replacement cost and
protects the laptop worldwide. For additional information, contact Blake Barth at 405-269-4378 or visit the
website at www.studentinsurancepartners.com.

Students/parents are responsible for completing and submitting the optional insurance application and submitting
a claim to the insurance company if needed. The netbook specification information is posted on the EVSC
website at www.evscschools.com (click on educational support services and then click on technology in right-
hand column) to assist with needed claim information.
