Policy No. 3142 Exchange Students (J-1 Visa)
The Provo City School District seeks the safety and success of all foreign exchange students admitted to attend school within the district. To ensure the security and success of these students, procedures have been developed which will require certain standards for exchange agencies and programs, ensure that students meet all visa requirements, required background checks, and appropriate training for host parents, and ensure that students will receive proper care and supervision in a safe environment during their stay.
In accordance with Utah State legislation determining that local school boards must regulate their own policies for the admission of foreign exchange students, the Provo City School Board directs the development of procedures for managing these admissions and to ensure that appropriate requirements are met by students, host families, exchange agencies, and programs.
