Enrollment Process (EMIS)

Contact: John Sipusic


When a resident district receives a records request from Valley STEM+ME2 Academy the resident district is to withdraw the student to Valley STEM+ME2 Academy just as they would any other student leaving to attend any other district. There are no joint/shared EMIS reporting responsibilities between Valley STEM+ME2 Academy and resident districts. *Please read below from the current EMIS manual for further clarification.

Students have the option of returning to home district after sophomore year. John Sipusic will be in contact with home district EMIS in these cases.

Students who come from STEM to CTC: Will unenroll student from Valley STEM. Discussion- protocol. John Sipusic will be in contact with home district EMIS coordinator to determine process. **As 11th grader at CTC- 20% funding goes back to home district
