How to request an IDT
What do I do if my IDT is denied:
If your IDT request is denied you may file an appeal review by calling 827-3376. Your written appeal should include all pertinent information related to your original IDT request and all additional information that may be important to an approval. The administrator in charge will review your appeal based on: New information provided, school capacity etc. Once the administrator has reached a decision you will be notified by mail. There is no appeal to the appeal; the decision is FINAL.
Appeal reviews are conducted the first week of each month.
If your appeal is denied we conduct Open Enrollment for current KHSD students during the month of April. Please check back during April if your appeal is denied and you would still like to be considered for another school.
Please be patient with this process. If you have any questions you can contact me by emailing: [email protected]
