ENTITLEMENT TO EDUCATION
 
Every child of school age who is a resident of a Pennsylvania school district is entitled to a public school education.  This entitlement and the requirements to secure enrollment discussed throughout this BEC apply equally to resident students residing with their parent(s); to non-resident students living with a district resident who is supporting the child gratis and seeking enrollment under 24 P.S.§ 13-1302; to nonresident students living in a facility or institution; and to nonresident students living in a foster home.  Provided that the required enrollment documentation described herein is provided, the school district or charter school must enroll non-resident children and permit them to attend school.  A child should be permitted to attend school on the next school day after the day on which the child is presented for enrollment; and in all cases within five (5) business days of the school district's receipt of the required documentation (22 Pa.
