7:30 - Areas of Attendance

Policy 7:30

Students

Areas of Attendance and Intra-District Transfer

The School District is divided into school attendance areas. The Superintendent will review the boundary lines annually and recommend any changes to the School Board. The Superintendent or designee shall maintain a map of the District showing current school attendance areas. 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. 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.

If a parent/guardian wishes to request an intra-district transfer, the request should be directed to the Superintendent. The Superintendent, at his or her sole discretion, may grant the request when the parent(s)/guardian(s) demonstrate that the student could be better accommodated in the educational proram 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: (1) Title I covered in Board Policy 6:15, School Accountability, or (2) the Unsafe School Choice Option covered in Board Policy 4:170, Safety.
