Alpine Summit Programs does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin (ancestry), sex, religion, disabilities, or age in any of its activities or operations. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students, staff, family members, and community members.
Thank you for providing assistance to students who are in custody of the state. The process for enrolling custody students in Alpine School District is outlined below:
For All Custody Students:
Required YIC Intake Form completed and signed by case manager
Immunization Record (see Immunization Requirements here)
Individualized Education Plan (IEP) if applicable
Transcripts (secondary students only)
For Elementary Students:
3. Notify Summit at 801-610-8183 that documents have been sent, and discuss any additional circumstances that merit special consideration (behavior, academic, family, etc.). When the completed documents are reviewed a Clearance Letter will be sent to your neighborhood elementary school. (In some cases an in-person meeting may be necessary.)
4. Enroll your student at the elementary school. *Students need a new Clearance Letter each school year
For Secondary Students:
3. Schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor at Alpine Summit Programs. Caseworkers are asked to attend the meeting to give input on student placement. JJS case managers should be reachable by phone during appointment.
4. Attend scheduled intake meeting. If it is determined that the student is ready to enroll in a mainstream school a Clearance Letter will be provided at the meeting. *Students need a new Clearance Letter each school year
5. Enroll student at neighborhood school or at Summit High School or Summit Middle School according to the decision made at the intake meeting.
For Non-Custody Students:
Summit High School does serve students who are not in state custody but live in the Alpine School District boundaries and have struggled at mainstream schools or may need a change of scenery. If you wish to enroll your student at Summit, please call us at (801) 610-8183 to set up an appointment to meet with our principal, Lynn Gerratt.
(If you have any questions about the intake process, please call Alpine Summit Programs at 801-610-8183.)
For Students Cleared to Attend Mainstream Schools:
All custody students (grades K-12) who are cleared to attend a mainstream school in the Alpine School District are assigned a mentor through Alpine Summit Programs. Mentors meet weekly with their students, usually in the student’s home, to help ensure the student’s academic success. This includes, but is not limited to:
- setting and monitoring goals
- checking up on grades, attendance, and behavior
- connecting students with resources available to them in their schools and communities
- career and life skills
- college readiness.
You should be contacted by your student’s mentor within their first week of enrolling to set up a time to meet.
