Request to Return to DCPS
If a student does not complete the high school program at an adult studies program or charter school, the student may re-enroll in the Duval County Public Schools. The student shall be scheduled into the appropriate program of study. All evidence of credits and grades earned in these programs will be based on an official transcript.
Students who enroll in Catapult or other Dropout Prevention Program (DPP) must use the guidelines below for re-enrollment unless they are a student with a disability with an active IEP and have not yet turned 22, but cannot be served at Catapult Academy or another DPP. Exceptions may be considered due to extenuating circumstances.
Students who are enrolled in either Catapult or other DPP and wish to be evaluated for re-enrollment into a Duval County Public School must:
- Submit a letter to the Dropout Prevention Office describing the extenuating circumstances;
- Have earned at least 2 credits per semester while enrolled at Catapult or other DPP;
- Have the ability to graduate on-time with their 9th grade cohort;
- Understand that consideration for re-enrollment into a DCPS comprehensive high school may only occur within the first ten school days of the semester. Once the ten-day window is closed, students may not return during that semester.
- Understand that a committee will review each request and determine if re-enrollment will be granted;
- Understand that this process will only be considered once per student.
