Apply: A student applying for admission to a Premier High School must complete a Student Application for Admission (“Application”). Applications for the 2015-2016 school year are accepted at any time. Students can apply using one of three methods:
- Complete an online Application,
- Call 1-877-737-0010, or
- Make an appointment to visit a Premier High School.
Admission: If space is available, then an eligible applicant—i.e., a student with qualifying residency and disciplinary history—will be offered admission.
Waiting List: If space is not available, then an eligible applicant will be added to the waiting list in the order in which his or her Application was received. If a vacancy arises, the eligible applicant on the waiting list with the lowest number assignment will be offered admission and then removed from the waiting list.
Applications Received After the Open-Enrollment Period: If an Application is received from an eligible applicant after the close of the open-enrollment period, the eligible applicant’s name will be added to the waiting list behind the names of the eligible applicants who timely applied.
Enrollment: Students offered admission to the school—as well as the first ten eligible applicants on the waiting list—will be required to complete the school’s Student Enrollment Packet (“Enrollment Packet”). STUDENTS WHO FAIL TO COMPLETE THE ENROLLMENT PACKET (ALONG WITH ALL REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION) WITHIN THREE WEEKS OF RECEIVING THE ENROLLMENT PACKET WILL BE DEEMED TO HAVE WITHDRAWN FROM THE SCHOOL (OR WITHDRAWN THEIR APPLICATION) TO MAKE ROOM FOR OTHER ELIGIBLE APPLICANTS.
Reapply: Students still on the waiting list on May 1, 2016, who wish to apply for admission for the 2016-2017 school year, will need to reapply for admission May 2, 2016, through May 16, 2016 (“Open-Enrollment Period”). BECAUSE AVAILABLE POSITIONS FOR THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR WILL BE FILLED IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THE APPLICATIONS ARE RECEIVED PRIOR TO THE CLOSE OF THE OPEN-ENROLLMENT PERIOD, STUDENTS SHOULD REAPPLY AS EARLY IN THE OPEN-ENROLLMENT PERIOD AS POSSIBLE.
Residency Information: The school may accept only those students within the school’s designated geographic boundary. As such, students will be required to show proof of residency when completing the Registration Packet. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in the immediate initiation of procedures to exclude the student from admission.
Disciplinary History: As provided in the school’s charter, the school may exclude a student from admission who has a documented history of a criminal offense, juvenile court adjudication, or discipline problems under Subchapter A, Chapter 37, of the Texas Education Code. The school shall exclude a student from admission who has a documented history of an offense listed in Section 37.007(a), (d), or (e) of the Texas Education Code. As such, if it is later discovered that the student failed to disclose a documented history of a criminal offense, juvenile court adjudication, or disqualifying discipline problems, the school will immediately initiate procedures to exclude the student from admission.
Parental Rights: The completion of this Application does not determine the parental relationship and does not affect legal right of access to the student or the student’s records.
Providing False Information: A person who knowingly falsifies information on this Application may be guilty of an offense under Section 37.10 of the Texas Penal Code.
Non-Discrimination: In accordance with the Texas Education Code and the school’s charter; it is the policy of the school to prohibit discrimination in student admission on the basis of sex; national origin; ethnicity; religion; disability; academic, artistic, or athletic ability; or the district the student would otherwise attend.
