Schoharie Junior-Senior High School
Parents/guardians wishing to enroll a student in grades 7-12 should contact the Junior-Senior High School Guidance Office at (518) 295-6611.
Parents/guardians will be required to complete and sign a release form so that the Schoharie Central School District may request and receive the new or returning student’s records from his/her current or previous school. During the time of initial contact, basic information will be obtained (student name, date of birth, grade level, physical/mailing address, phone number, parents/guardians names, any special education needs, etc.). In addition, parents/guardians will be provided with student information cards to be completed and returned to the Guidance Office.
Once the student’s records have been received from the current or previous school, the parent/guardian will be contacted to set up an appointment to meet with the counselor. During this meeting, the student information cards will be collected, and a schedule and start date will be set for the student. A tour of the facilities will also be given to those unfamiliar with the school.
A student new to the district will be provided with a student mentor for the first day or two. The mentor will be there to show the new student to his/her classes and to answer any questions the student may have.
Procedures for Students Transferring From SCSD
Students transferring from the Schoharie Central School District to another school will need to obtain two forms from the Guidance Office. These forms must be completed and signed by the parent/guardian prior to the student’s departure.
The first form grants the district permission to release the student’s records to the new school. The second form is to be taken by the student, to each of his/her teachers and specified staff members for signatures. This form indicates that all school books and locks have been turned in and may also note the student’s current course grades.
Both completed and signed forms are to be returned to the Guidance Office on the student’s last day at Schoharie Central School District.
