A student may enroll at Community High School under the following provisions:
- the student is between the ages of 16-21
- the student has his/her permanent school records forwarded to CHS prior to starting classes
- the student must bring a parent/guardian to the new student orientation with the CHS principal before starting classes at CHS (if the student is 18 years old and living independently, a parent/guardian is not required)
- the CHS principal determines the setting at CHS would better serve the student than his/her current setting
- if applicable, an IEP/ILP meeting must be held
If the student is transferring directly from West Fargo High School or Sheyenne High School, the following must be completed:
- meet with a guidance counselor at WFHS/SHS
- secure a referral from an administrator to attend CHS
- complete the checkout process at WFHS/SHS
If you are new to the West Fargo school district, please check your address on our district map to determine which school your child will attend for this school year. To register your child(ren), please call the school indicated on the map to be your home school. Please note that students in K – 5, 6 – 8, and 9 – 12 attend different schools; having multiple children of different ages may require you to call more than one school.
North Dakota Century Code 33-06-05-01 requires any child admitted to school be required to receive the immunizations according to the recommended schedule set forth by the state department of health. Any child not adhering to the recommended schedule must provide proof of immunization or a certificate of immunization within 30 days of enrollment or be excluded from school or an early childhood facility.
If you know of a child between the ages of 0-21 that lives in the West Fargo School District, who may have a disability and who is receiving no special services, please contact our Special Education Department at (701) 356-2003.
Kindergarten Early Entrance
North Dakota Century Code requires that students entering kindergarten in the fall must be five years of age on or before July 31. It is the intent of West Fargo Public Schools to admit children into kindergarten who do not meet the August 1 age requirement, but do meet the December 1 age requirement and who successfully pass West Fargo Public Schools early entrance evaluation criteria (NDCC 15.1-06.01). Please contact your resident elementary school to request additional information related to early entrance procedures and timelines. The application form and questionnaire is due no later than April 15, 2019 for the 2019-2020 school year.
