Students entering the DeWitt School District must complete a registration form (available at your child's school) and meet with the principal and/or guidance counselor to work out their courses of study. Planning a program of study is an important matter and needs serious consideration. Parents and student should discuss the plan. The mere accumulation of units does not insure sound planning. College-bound students should be aware of special requirements college may have and that additional English, Math, and Science are particularly valuable to college-bound students. Selecting a course based on who's in the class or who the teacher is is generally a poor practice.
The schools of the DeWitt School District shall be open and free through the completion of the secondary program to all person between the ages of 5 and 21 years whose parents, legal guardians, or other persons having lawful control of thte person under an order of a court reside within the District and to all persons between those ages who have been legally transferred to the District for educational purposes.
