Attendance Areas

The School District is divided into school attendance areas. The Superintendent will:

  1. Review the boundary lines annually and recommend to the School Board any changes or revisions for existing units; or
  2. Create new units using a lens that considers preventing segregation and the elimination of separating students in the District’s schools because of color, race, or nationality.

The Superintendent or designee shall maintain a map of the District showing current school attendance areas. All records pertaining to the creation, alteration, or revision of attendance units are open to the public. Students living in a given school attendance area will be assigned to that school. Homeless children shall be assigned according to Board Policy 6:140, Education of Homeless Children.

Transfer Within the District

A student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) may request a transfer for their child to a District school other than the one assigned. A request should be directed to the Superintendent, who has sole discretion, may grant the request when the parent(s)/guardian(s) demonstrate that the student could be better accommodated at another school, provided space is available. If a request is granted, the parent/guardian shall be responsible for transportation. The provisions in this section have no applicability to transfers pursuant to the Unsafe School Choice Option covered in Board policy 4:170, Safety. Intra-district transfer requests will not generally be honored because students are expected to attend the school having the attendance boundaries in which they reside.

Class Assignments

The Superintendent or designee shall assign students to classes.
