Interdistrict Attendance   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

In accordance with an agreement between the Governing Board and the board of another district, a permit authorizing a student's attendance outside his/her district of residence may be issued upon approval of both the district of residence and the district of proposed attendance.

The Superintendent or designee may approve interdistrict agreements for the following

(84 Ops.Cal.Atty.Gen. 198 (2001)) reasons:

1. When the student has been determined by staff of either the district of residence or district of proposed attendance to be a victim of an act of bullying as defined in Education Code 48900(r). Such a student shall be given priority for interdistrict attendance under any existing interdistrict attendance agreement or, in the absence of an agreement, shall be given consideration for the creation of a new permit. (Education Code 46600)

2. To meet the child care needs of the student for as long as they continue to use a child care provider within district boundaries.

(cf. 5148 - Child Care and Development)

3. To meet a child's special mental or physical health needs, as certified by a physician, school psychologist or other appropriate school personnel.

(cf. 6159 - Individualized Education Program)

4. When the student has brother(s) or sister(s) attending school in a receiving district, to avoid splitting the family's attendance.

5. To allow students to remain with a class graduating that year from an elementary or middle school.

6. When the parent/guardian provides written evidence (e.g. copy of a lease; completed escrow papers) that the family will be moving to the receiving district in the immediate future and would like the student to start the year in that district.

7. When there is valid interest in a particular educational program not offered in the district of residency.

8. When the student is a child of an employee of the district.

(cf. 5113.1 - Chronic Absence and Truancy)

(cf. 5113.12 - District School Attendance Review Board)

Every interdistrict attendance permit shall stipulate the terms and conditions under which the permit may be revoked. (Education Code 46600)

Interdistrict transfers may occur when class enrollments in the district will permit the addition of nonresident students. Continuing interdistrict transfer students must reapply on a yearly basis to attend the following year. Notification of placement will be made prior to the end of each school year. Annual renewal shall take place in the spring of each school year allowing school site administrators an opportunity to review each applicant, attendance, any disruptions of the educational program, or failure to progress towards meeting district standards, prior to requesting interdistrict attendance renewals.

Interdistricts Based on Child Care Needs

Interdistrict transfers for continuing students shall be approved on an annual basis subject as long as the student continues to receive child care in the district. A student's interdistrict agreement may be denied or revoked because of falsified information on the application, unsatisfactory attendance, disruption of the educational program, or failure to progress towards meeting district standards.

Transportation

Transportation shall not be provided for students attending on an interdistrict agreement.

(cf. 3250 - Transportation Fees)

(cf. 3540 - Transportation)

Denial of Interdistrict Transfer Agreement

The Superintendent may deny initial requests for interdistrict attendance agreements for capacity considerations of a program, class, grade level, school building or adverse financial impact. Within 30 calendar days of a request for an interdistrict permit, the Superintendent or designee shall provide parent/guardians of a student who is denied interdistrict attendance regarding the process for appeal to the County Board of Education. (Education Code 46601)

(cf. 5145.6 - Parental Notifications)

Students who are under consideration for expulsion or who have been expelled may not appeal interdistrict attendance denials or decisions while expulsion proceedings are pending, or during the term of the expulsion. (Education Code 46601)

(cf. 5119 - Students Expelled from Other Districts)

(cf. 5144.1 - Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process)

A student's interdistrict agreement may be denied or revoked because of falsified information on the application, unsatisfactory attendance, disruption of the educational program, or failure to progress towards meeting district standards. Once a student is admitted, the district may not deny him/her continued attendance under his/her current annual agreement because of overcrowded facilities at the relevant grade level.

(cf. 5144 - Discipline)
