District Students Transferring to Other Districts Based on Parent/Guardian Employment

When a student's parent/guardian requests that the student be transferred to another district based on the parent/guardian's physical employment within that other district, the Board may deny the request if the percentage of district students admitted to other districts on the basis of parent/guardian employment exceeds the limits prescribed in Education Code 48204. A transfer may also be denied if the Board determines that the transfer would negatively impact a court-ordered or voluntary desegregation plan. (Education Code 48204)

The student's parent/guardian shall be notified in writing of the Board's decision to deny the transfer to the school district in which the parent/guardian's employer is situated. The notice shall include specific reasons for the denial.
