A parent, guardian, or other person with legal authority to make decisions regarding school attendance on behalf of a child in this state, may make a request in writing for such child to attend Legacy Public Charter School.  In the case of a family with more than one (1) child seeking to attend Legacy Public Charter School, a single written request for admission must be submitted on behalf of all siblings.  The written request for admission must be submitted to, and received by, Legacy Public Charter School on or before the enrollment deadline established by the Governing Board.  The written request for admission shall contain the name, grade level, address, and telephone number of each prospective student in a family.
