(a) In the event that official education records cannot be released to the parents for the purpose of transfer, the custodian of the records in the sending state shall prepare and furnish to the parent a complete set of unofficial educational records containing uniform information as determined by the interstate commission to the extent feasible. Upon receipt of the unofficial education records by a school in the receiving state, the school shall enroll and appropriately place the student based on the information provided in the unofficial records pending validation by the official records, as quickly as possible.
(b) Simultaneous with the enrollment and conditional placement of the student, the school in the receiving state shall request the student's official education record from the school in the sending state. Upon receipt of this request, the school in the sending state will process and furnish the official education records to the school in the receiving state within ten (10) days or within such time as is reasonably determined under the rules promulgated by the interstate commission.
(c) Compacting states shall give thirty (30) days from the date of entry, for students to obtain and provide proof of any immunization required by the receiving state. For a series of immunizations, initial vaccinations shall be obtained within thirty (30) days and the child shall be permitted to attend school while receiving continuing immunization if the school administrator receives notification or a waiver is granted in accordance with W.S. 21-4-309.
(d) Students shall be allowed to continue their enrollment at grade level in the receiving state commensurate with their grade level, including kindergarten, from a local education agency in the sending state at the time of transition with the exception of children that have not yet met the age requirements as required by W.S. 21-4-301 and 21-4-302. A student that has satisfactorily completed the prerequisite grade level in the local education agency in the sending state shall be eligible for enrollment in the next highest grade level in the receiving state. A student transferring after the start of the school year in the receiving state shall enter the school in the receiving state on their validated level from an accredited school in the sending state except where the child has not yet obtained the age as required by W.S. 21-4-301 and 21-4-302 for kindergarten and first grade.
